The Shadow of a Smile

kyrielle sonnet Graduating from college life in June of nineteen sixty-five, We recall in music's spotlight - The Shadow of Your Smile - top-flight. Departing from four-year friendships, Some thought that nothing could eclipse a love affair, they knew was so right - Shadows of Your Smile at midnight. On the world's stage, they’re newcomers They marched to different drummers; All but forgotten, tribute’s slight, the Shadow of Your Smile became trite. What wistful star may shed some light? The Shadow of a New Smile might. written 18 April 2016 Contest: Gren's Evergreens (Golden Oldies) #1, Host: Teppo Gren

not as deep as old, a song I first heard 50 years ago plus. I appreciate the read and the single word reply.
