I have an older poem, even though it’s not Flashback Friday. Today, I was listening to this song, linked by Andrea, and it brought back memories. I’d never heard that guy singing it, but I like the song, and I remembered that I had written a poem about the song on 12/23/2021. So I thought it would be appropriate to share it; thankfully, it was not in one of the poetry notebooks that I gave to my friends, as I wasn’t sure.
“Revisiting ‘River'” (12/23/2021)
Here I am, listening again "I wish I had a river, I could skate away on" -- Not so sad as I was in the past, but "I wish I had a river, I could skate away on." That feeling is only momentarily gone Not sure if it will last 'til Christmas dawn, Not sure when it comes or goes, or why -- "I'd teach my feet to fly;" On that river I can skate away on -- Notes of music flowing on and on.
