Smile's and sunshine
traffic flows slows
air is thick
as 3 in 4-door
against the wind
on a road to better
along country roads
what hearts will not
if you cannot speak
you might as well sing
alone and off key
that it is just
how this day
Author's Note: "Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaitey and life to everything. It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good and just and beautiful." --Plato

Nice write lady. And the nice thing is it doesn't talk back. Sometimes it is all that is really needed.

The family that sings together stays together, even off key...hopefully ha ha. Well represented Sandy!
