Paul’s Poetry

Mother Nature Has Filled The Pond
And For The Most Part We Feel Rather Blessed
ironic The Rain, Is Now Causing Pain
As Our Patience Is Put To The Test

the Water Is Calling – “come Down And Ski!”
But The Clouds Have A Mind Of Their Own
28? 32? We’re Felling So Blue
As We Sit In Our Sadness At Home

Scott Shipley Just Texted; He’s Aborting The Mission
A Decision That Took Careful Thought
from Scott’s Valley You Know, Is A Long Way To Tow
Just To Sit In The Pond Parking Lot

oh Well This Is Still A Great Problem To Have
There’s Many More Days To Come
erase All Those The Frowns Cause You Know We’ll Be Down
To The Pond ………… With Plenty Of Sun!!
