Your Song lyrics

A night of poetry and friends last night at Salem Poetry Project!

I keep looking back today – so I think we will go with John Elton’s “You’re Song” for today’s prompt “I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss“.

There’s a few sources to go for on the lyrics today, I think AZLyrics has the bestt formatting.

I have a number of poems people can claim are their poem – it was written about or for them specifically.

But I need to head to a doc Appointment .. so I will share one when I get home.
