Poetry Corner

By Jim Farfaglia

College Bound

 

The night air streams in,

car windows wide open,

feeling the fullness of summer

 

and breathing in the beauty

that Seals and Crofts are singing;

treasuring it, for our tomorrows…

 

Old enough to know this endless fun will end.

Young enough to wonder

how we’ll learn to leave it all behind…

 

No one says a word; the song on the radio

playing like a gentle breeze,

soothing the ache that’s closing in.
