Poetry Corner: Do You Want to Know a Secret

Do You Want to Know a Secret

by Jim Farfaglia

Walking the streets of a new morning,

whistling a Beatles tune;

surprised how easily it comes to mind.

 

Feeling its melody pick me up,

returning me to the soundtrack of my youth;

moved by those songs of long ago.

 

Recalling John and Paul’s harmony,

uncovering their groovy philosophies;

abandoned as a relic of the ‘60s – now

 

singing its way into this day,

tapping the shoulder of my settled life;

whispered, like a welcome secret.
