A Place For Poetry

A Magic Quite Simple

I could tell you the story,

Of Jackie and Lyn,

And lie at its start,

And lie at its end.

*******

How Jackie was handsome,

A way with his talk,

And Lyn she a beauty,

A grace in her walk.

********

How they met at the corner,

Of Hello and Goodbye,

Their love was an instant,

No struggle or try.

*******

How Jackie was gentle,

A kindness quite true,

He opened all doors,

Knew just what to do.

*********

And Lyn she would smile,

And hold him so tight,

How people would marvel,

And nod at the sight.

*********

I could tell you their love,

Was an epic of time,

A fable of answers,

A spirited rhyme.

*******

A thing to admire,

And hold to your heart,

But remember I lied,

At the end and the start.

********

For Jackie was foolish,

Never opened a door,

Thought love would be easy,

No struggle in store.

*********

He treated dear Lyn,

Like nothing at all,

And she let him go,

And she let him fall.

*********

For he wasn’t that handsome,

A stuttering talk,

She sometimes a beauty,

A hitch in her walk.

*********

But once they did meet,

At Hello and Goodbye,

And something was there,

Both truth and a lie.

********

So believe in the real,

How he failed to the end,

And wasn’t that nice,

To a girl he named Lyn.

**********

But I’ll stick to the story,

With charm at its heart,

A magic quite simple,

It has a sweet start.

*********

On the corner of something,

Right next to Goodbye,

Their love was no struggle,

And he caught her eye.

********

She held him quite tight,

This beauty called Lyn,

And their love lingers on,

Never finding its end.
