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.
