ME LYDIA

 

Today being the first day of Spring,
it would seem appropriate to reflect back
upon the springtime of my youthful days,
when I was seemingly a daft and foolish buffoon,
who’d stumble into the pit, who’d stand out in the rain,
who’d howl loudly at the moon.
Hmm…when I think about it, not all that much has changed…
