A New Love

My old love’s gone, and now a new love’s here
although with that old love she can’t compete!
She’s silver smooth from front - to tiny rear;
More practical than my old love, yet sweet!
And like my old love, she is always near.
She’s not as sporty, but she’s just as fleet.
And though I miss my honey “ragtop” girl,
I take my new love “Kia” for a whirl!

Clever turn and so much more dependable as least for the first 5 years. Who can match that??

How cool is that that you used your Kia as an inspiration for your "new love" -- if cars can smile-- I bet your Kia's smiling form ear to ear ;) very interesting take on the contest, Andrea :) This car can probably grow on you soon :) -- I hope so-- hugs to you :) -- hope your weekend's doing good :) -- nikko :)

LOL I thought you were speaking as a man describing his new lady, Andrea. Then you cleverly pulled a switch on us! Hope you're enjoying your new car. Jared will get a kick out of this. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn

Hi Andrea. Thanks for your comments. Delighted to know that you are familiar with ' "the wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" . Are you from Canada. our city is twinned with Nova Scotia and we have a great crossover in music. Best of luck and in the contest and with the new car. Great writing and emotion for the old and the new. We had a 20yr old Volvo. When we got rid of it my wife cried. Be lucky, Eamon

Andrea, what a cute write on your new car.. I am sorry about the possibility of your school closing.. Praying that it doesn't come to that 'cause I can only imagine how everybody will be affected by that.. Let me know what happens please.. Love Wilma
