THAT SONG

Where’s the song I remember? The one

we all knew, at least some of us did.

From radios on beaches, flowing out car

windows and down hallways playing its tune.

The song bridled a sweetness to the air,

a message of words, a rhythm, where

fingers tapped and heads nodded.

Like life, things fade.  Memories grow thin

along with friends and family.  But the song

should remain.  Claiming new ground, new

generations, fostering a purity of seasons

like I remember when I first heard that song.
