glory days

October 9, 2008
By Ellyn Frisch, Whitehall, PA

Record every day the sun shone
(the rain along with those days)
kiss every sky’s star
and every star’s sky

hold each rose in your hands
(hold the scent just as close to your heart)
as the rose you kiss good night
and good morning

Rewind the reels of the sun
Play it back slow
Fast forward the rain
but make sure you know

Stop, hold each rose in your hands
while you shout and scream
on the loop-di-loops
of these glory days

cherish the purity
of those Friday night lights
and those fireflies we chased
Cherish the glory days

Record the glory days
Play the glory days
then everyday is a glory day
if a glory day is everyday
