Down By The Water

V. Teterin A Working Lad.

A lad strolled by and said:
"Hey, I'm wondering what to do with all these words
floating about in my head?
I tend to forget them as soon as I go to bed!"

I said, "Well, while you're here,
why not share
all your words floating so freely
about in that head!

And so my dear readers,
here is this young lad's poem,
who goes by the name, the Forgetful Poet.

"I'm only a young apprentice poet," he claims, 
and,  "if you have a kind word or two,
please know I appreciate your encouragement and tips
to help me grow up from the rather shy Forgetful Poet to
the confident Unforgettable Poet instead."

Down By The Water— by Forgetful Poet


Singing a song, down by the water...

walking along singing a song

out by the water and over the hill

through the meadow and into the cottage

soon I’ll be singing a song

down by the water again

    Oh, Wonderful!! Hey, Sunshine, have you ever seen that movie, “Freedom Writers”? Your post puts me in mind of it–it’s excellent, so affirming; if you haven’t seen it, put in on your list (that’s so NOT an order, just a suggestion…) God bless you–love, sis Caddo

      I did see the movie, ‘Freedom Writers’ but I need to watch it again . . . memory loss rapidly occurring!
      School teacher, right? She has disadvantage kids journal or write and at first they rebel, but in the end, their writing pulls them over to the success path? Something like that?

      And Caddo, I don’t mind orders if they make me a better person. Lol!! Thanks and now I’m gonna read your poem for the day! 🙂

      Right–I forgot to mention that Hillary Swank plays the teacher, which might jog your memory! (Mine is like a colander these days–unfortunately it’s not selective memory loss, you know?)

      Hey Marcy! I imagine the stream would be a very nice location to visit but the water looks a bit chilly, huh?

      I’m glad you stopped on by for a visit. It’s always a pleasure when you do and I’m hoping your weekend is kicking off nicely. 🙂 See ya!
