"Not one would mind, neither bird not tree
If mankind perished utterly
And Spring herself, when she woke at down,
Would hardly know that we were gone." ~Sara Teasdale
(Yea, I know, it's kind of deep, but I kind of dig it.))

Underneath the large oak tree
On the corner of 5th and Maple
Right beside the little lake
And the wooden picnic table

There is the bench where we would meet
In the brilliant afternoon
We'd bring our lunch and eat there
Every Saturday in June

The birds would chirp
The wind would blow
It was just so beautiful
Like something done by Van Gogh

The Afternoon bench
Under the afternoon sun
I wish to relive those days forever
An eternity spent on rerun
