First Line Friday: Was that a knock?

7aabf7362a424a9d9f1ec71b08c4f8c6

Was that a knock?
Wait… I’m coming
Walking with my stalk
Wondering and humming

And to my surprise you’re there
Amid all the flowers
Aware of the flair
At a hundred miles an hour

Nothing could make me happier
Nostalgia and sweet memories
Not even when you’re snappier
Never in my reveries

O what fun I have to say
Only you I want in my life
Over the hills and far away
Oh my love, let’s not strife*
