My family is playing stomach flu dominoes and we are down 3 out of 4 with a possible alternate in Biggest because she spent a lot of time here this week. As the last one standing I am hoping to keep up my visiting/reading the next few days in between Gatorade refills and before I go down but I'm not feeling very promising at the moment so if I seem to have disappeared SEND GATORADE!....
If you are new here or missed my: Ms. G. is Grounded post, In September I thought that since I chronicle my teenagers here it would only be fair to share a little bit about myself as a teen back in the renaissance. You remember the Renaissance right? As I dug threw my cardboard box I came upon this brilliant gem that I penned in March 1982 when I was 16. So here is a second installment filed under Pack Rat/ Me As A Teenager. The Poetry Edition.
At this mid point in my life, I again peruse these lines that bear my profound young soul and emerging self knowledge and I realize something.
I really haven't changed too much.
Rising out of the ocean
Golden skin glistening in the sun
This is how I first saw you
The unbelievably perfect one
If I were Aphrodite
You'd be my Adonis
And I'd hide us away
So no one could find us
Perfectly carved features
Almost painful to see
I couldn't believe you
Would really want me
And I was right
You walked right past
I knew something that good
Just wouldn't last.
By Miss G. aged 16 but probably telling people she was 18 ...or maybe 20.
