yuh McLean rhymes with rain for yuh that didn't know


We found a space on the open grass
To let the time before the big show pass
My eight year old son, my wife, and I
I was so proud that I thought Id cry

A group of kids asked whos Don McLean
I watched the sky as it began to rain
My son rolled his eyes and I felt so high
As he told them about American Pie

Watching my kids grow up makes me sad
But I cant help but mold them good or bad
To see my son singing to Don McLean
Lets just say I was thankful for the rain

A hippie sang to his baby walking by
So one day hed too sing American Pie
The song faded and the rain stopped to fall
And the rainbow that shone said it all



All Day I Dream About Stanzas!!

Walt~
What a nostalgic render of tender heart.
Of course now you've got me singing American Pie ...  
Makes a nice lullaby too.
I like this poem, my friend.
Would appear you had a wonderful day.

Walt, Even if I did not love the song American Pie I think I would now from this poem you write. Amazing how I felt reading it, I got goosebumps just seeing how precious everything in life is too you. God bless you for being you.

Walt you've done an outstanding job describing this! Matter of fact I was watching the "oldies" on TV tonight. He was amongst them. Eric Clapton, Beatles, Elvis... and many, many more.

You've done great, sure wish I could have seen that rainbow. I actually got a picture of a double one in Colorado. I got to see them there quite often.  Here you're lucky if you ever see one.

This AMERICAN PIE thing has come up once or twice in our conversations!  Simple, yet informative.  Pretty cool son!  The rainbow allows the reader to sum up your deep encounter.
