We've all been here, haven't we???

So Long Ago

In the Spring of 64, he stood there

long and lean

right by my stop, we chatted

went to a tavern

and had a few beers.

He said that hed waited at the stop all

of these years

all of these years

We were both tired, so

we popped into a shop

down on Main street,

one that I forgot.

All of these years

all of these years.

As time progressed and we

loved a lot,

I found myself nail-less

eaten by rot.

Oh no, wont do that

cant do that, after

all of these years

all of these years.

So I headed out on my own

after all of these years

all of these years.

I turned right

walked a few steps left

and right again. I found myself

lost in a maze, all of these years

all of these years.

Oh no, wont do that

cant do that, after

all of these years

all of these years.

For there leaning against a post

the bearded man waved me over

after all of these years...

Janet Caldwell July 2,2005

Hi Janet,

Been a long time, miss reading you. I really like how you've worded this great piece.

Simplicity merged with magic. A rhythmic metaphor of life. This is a very fine poem, and it has staying power.

First, Janny, before I forget, that bio picture you've got up today rocks, girl! You look gorgeous. :-) You worked this one, lady. The repetition is in the groove, perfect for spoken word and it moves the poem to punctuated poignancy. For so many reasons I started to weep on this one. Did you get the webpage I sent you with the song you like and the extra? ~~Nordette

Excellent! The repetition is a metaphor in itself,
isn't it. Canny choice!! You have taken a common theme
and turned it into something extraordinary. In a few
words, at that. MORE!! Phyllis <3
