THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Are Poets the Same as Everyone Else?” by Esther Cohen: festival, together, wore, only, poems, fruit, walked, favourite, wine, listened, before, shades

If only you were here before
We’d walked along the villages
Listened to our favourite song

I’d write some poems short and long
Under the shades we’d kissed for ages
We’d go to festival, I swore

I still remember what you wore
When you left and the house changes
Overgrown plants which was all wrong

Together we used to belong
I’ve regretted all the chances
Come back to always open door

If only we could bring back time
I’d write poems with all the rhyme*
