Elbows Linked To The Past

(This is a free verse, and rhyming was done coincidentally.... it's also long.)

Poised and neatly

Poised and neatly You walked

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not What fills

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not What fills Your bag

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not What fills Your bag As you come

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not What fills Your bag As you come Giddily

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not What fills Your bag As you come Giddily on tippie toes

Poised and neatly You walked With books in arms And bag strapped on Yet I know That's not What fills Your bag As you come Giddily on tippie toes.

When we Were young The adventures You lead Crushing meadows Of flowers and, Or maybe thorns In gruff clothes You wore Without a care In the world

When we Were young The adventures You lead Crushing meadows Of flowers and, Or maybe thorns In gruff clothes You wore Without a care In the world.
