Those Days of Vines and Posies With You!

The days of vines and posies

we laughed and skipped 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

under that tree

retching

gagging

on my knees!

With You!

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

The Days of Wine and Roses!
