I’ve never…

I’ve never heard a whipporwill

sing its lonely tune

I’ve never met that little boy

who’s fishing off the moon

I’ve never been caught outside

in a cat and dog monsoon

I’ve never been a perfect “10”

or swam in the blue lagoon

BUT

I have talked all night

and stayed awake till noon

I’ve written silly notes

to release in a red balloon

I have made quite a mess

eating spaghetti with a spoon

I’ve tromped through fields at night

to see the harvest moon

Don’t spend your life afraid

to look like a buffoon

You should do something silly

in fact, if you ask me,  you should start this afternoon 🙂
