Spring Semester

Yesterday lingers
in my memory today
Perched on a manicured hill
after the last bell
All my friends surrounding me
She strolls by, I catch blue eyes
glance quickly my way
A scented letter...
I rent a white tuxedo
for her Sorority dance
She's dressed in blue silk
We are formally announced
Arm-in-arm I escort her
through a flowered arch
to that shining floor...
The band sings a sweet slow song
I breathe in her perfume scent
Shivering slightly,
she snuggles ever closer,
humming the same melody
softly in my ear...

    Here is a real oldie of yours that I had seen a long time ago. and I still like it. Tim, I am feeling so mortified right now. I get these random allergy things that swell my face. One time it was my eyes, tonight it is my upper mouth. It does not hurt at all, but I am really afraid to wake up this way and have to face work. My students will call me monkey lady for the rest of their time with me. OH MY. Wish me luck. Joe ran out for liquid Benadryl. It worked the few times this happened to HIM.

    OH wow, what a wonderful picture you painted. Very romantic, Tim. And hey, I have like four hundred records, 45's that my husband would dearly love to toss out the door. Do you think I can get anything for them?
