The Days of Vines and Posies!

The days of vines and posies

we laugh and skip away

like flower buds at play…

Through the meadow

toward the outhouse door…

A door marked “give me more”

that wasn’t there before!

The lonely nights

disclose a passing breeze…

Filled with memories

of your golden smiling teeth…

That, damn it,

introduced me to

The days of vines and posies

You and me

under that tree



on our knees!


My sincerest apilogies to Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer for the 1964 Grammy Award song

The Days of Wine and Roses!
