Empty Memories

An empty page
  Before me lays
   As in my mind
    Your memory plays
     And all the while
    My beating heart
  Its frantic rhythm
Does impart
  I raise my weapon
   Lofty pen
    Place it on
     The pad and then
    Begin to write
   Of you and I
  Quickly now
As memories die
  In no time
   Before me lays
    A vision of
      Once better days
    Bled from my heart
   To ink of pen
  From mind to paper
And back again



 There are only two ages of people...living and dead and you all look about the right age to me

Hoot,
     I want to thank you for the great comment you gave my poem earlier.  It made me feel really good.  I haven't put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) for anything other than to write COBOL in far too long.  I want to say that it feels really great to get it all out again.  And your poem is one of the best I have ever read.  My favorite line:
     "memories to paper
    and back again".

Nothing could be more true!

Perfection of pen from our Queen of poetry.
Hoot, I love your poetic rhythm & rhyme, and all the other expressions that make you one of the best.

Hoot~
Now this is scrumptiously formatted
and laced with the sweetest sentiment
I've seen.

Your pen holds much magic.
I am in awe of your ever-increasing talent.
The muses of Spring are in your soul.
