At the big ditch -- a Poem for Sunday


Young folk;
at the big ditch
Sunning on the bank of the big ditch
they laid in the sun and talked
They were too young to be romantic
but true romantic they showed

He picked her white ripe dandelions ripe
white fuzzy domes she would blow
She would cool his brow when he sweat
her hanky dipped in the stream

Time to go yellow flowers he picked
bouquet for his sweet young friend
Hand in hand slowly they walked the mile
lingered by her door they part
  
His text on the way home, come morning
meet you at our corner, I'll carry books

This took me back to my teens taking the long way home, lugging books, holding hands and spending as much time as possible with her....sigh!

This is very sweet, Jim. Romance never gets old, though we do.
