Thank you Sarah. That is appreciated 🙂
Ooohhh so sweet..
Thank you Mich. I’m glad you liked it 🙂
This is really nice Davy. I feel the same way sometimes, thinking of what I could do but won’t ever do.
Sometimes it is worth just taking the chance Devereaux, at least you will find out 🙂
Chance taking… *sigh*
I’m not very good at it.
Alas, most of us aren’t chance takers and that is sad. The question is why? What is it about us, our culture, our upbringing or whatever that snuffs out that part of us that was there in childhood? Maybe just a desire to be in the middle of the Bell Curve? But doesn’t every little league player dream of the Big Time???

That’s brilliant. It also sums up every disco/club I went to between 1981 and 1988!
Cheers Martin. I think it was those times and hours that brought back the feeling and motivation for the poem.
Neat. I like the title. Now you are doing yourself down.
On the one occasion I actually took the plunge Roland I met Mrs Davy D and we have been together for 12 happy years.

That’s good news, Davy. Glad it worked out for you and Mrs.D.
Congratulations!!! Happy Years are great! Loved this piece – from your view. Why don’t you write your wife’s view at that moment?? Curious for the view from both sides of the board in light of the positive outcome?
A good idea, I will try to re-write this one from an alternative perspective, once I have interviewed my wife 🙂
So, My Dear Friend, have You done that interview with Your wife yet? I’m not recalling if You did? If so, please point me to it! I’m still curious! Ha!
It was very short Charles. Mrs. D said “well we have been together for twelve years, what do you think.” She keeps me grounded lol 🙂
Nice, Davy. You always do such a wonderful job of capturing “the scene.”
Thank you Laura. That is appreciated.
Oooh, yes yes yes!! I LOVE this, Davy!
Thank you Delyn. I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Truly I did!
This is lovely! 🙂
Thank you Sweta. I am glad you enjoyed it. I also appreciate you taking time out to read and follow my blog.
It’s always pleasure to read great verses. Stay blessed. 🙂
Thank you Sweta. You too 🙂
Love, love, love this 🙂
Thank you NJ. Your kind comments are much appreciated 🙂
You’re very welcome 🙂
awwww. such a sweet sweet piece!
Thank you Rosema. Your kind comments are appreciated 🙂
Nice one 🙂 ty
Appreciated Gemstars 🙂
What an eloquent expression of Hope, Desire and Dreams. Put this at the Top of your A list!!
Thank you, your comment is greatly appreciated.
Revisited and loved it even more! These are lines from a song that needs to be born!
Well if you write the music I will write the lyrics. Could be a collaboration for 2017.
Ok, revisiting this work and our comments so, I think I’m interested in trying this. Have You got any seeds/hooks to start with?? Maybe along the lines of this piece? Or better yet – this piece?
Please feel free to use this piece Chuck. I will write a response to the response, if you know what I mean 🙂
Ha! I have mainly concentrated on words (lyrics). If you change up the order of things and write the “Lyrics” first then the right music from the right person will find them? Hey, another new path to explore!! I just love the lyrics in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s works. Tons of other great songs that are a perfect blend of words and music – a marriage!!
Check out writing lyrics!! I think you would be really great at it!!!
I may give it a try. I tend to listen to music while I am writing poetry. The words and beats can be inspiring.
Something I like to do from time to time is use the cadence from a hit song and write new lyrics to the cadence.
I do this occasionally and it works with the metre of the poem.
Yes, exactly. I remember Paul Simon relating how he came to write Cecilia. He said that he was tapping a back beat on the piano bench that eventually ended up as the song “Cecilia”. I guess it can be a successful method!
A fantastic song and having heard what you said you can feel the finger tap in the song.
I have always felt that knowing how the song came into being enriches the song for me. I like it when I hear how poets, songwriters and authors talk about the back story of their creations. But that’s just me.
Had a great chance to recommend your work to a friend and gave her a link to this one. I warned her that she should not click on it unless she had a lot of time to spend reading as your work is extremely “Addictive”! LOL! In having to page back multiple times to find this I was just wondering if there is an easier way to search through what you have written and posted. Some info I would like to have for myself also. Hope your day is great!
Thank you Charles, that is deeply appreciated. If you scroll down on the home page of the blog there is a search box under archives. If you know the name of the poem and type it in there, it should find the poem. You could also use the tag cloud if you have an idea of the genre. Hope this helps. Have a great week Charles 🙂
Perfect!! Thanks. That will be very helpful. Is that something you added with a plug-in or does it come with the site?
Always love to plug your work! I love it and your probing, pinpoint questions and topics. Hope your weekend is great too!
It was part of the wordpress package Charles. And a big thank you for the support 🙂
[…] next work – OUT OF MY LEAGUE – is another great three line piece that is wistful and yearning and something most of us […]
