By the Mighty Mumford


If winter accompanied by fairies,

Is generally soft and light…

Whom do we say brought a storm

With hard-punching winds and fight?

Are we to believe same fairies

That brought the gentle are strong…

That a soft magical creature

Will turn unto King Kong?

The world of the fairies

Is wonderment contained…

And only someone who knows this world

Can have these queries explained!

Rae is an outgoing girl, the type that I can easily connect with. But Rae and I have never had intimate relationship. To me, Rae is a good buddy. But others don’t see that way. Cindy, even her mom, thought Rae and I were couple.

and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
