A Dahquain re Cahill

Flying Away

by LIJ Red

I spoke my bit on my profile
and we swapped names of tunes we liked
some songs I liked made Mikey smile
no smirk or sneer, an easy smile.

Surprised I was to hear him say
A gospel song was quite a gem
'twas Krauss's song, I'll Fly away
and so he did, he flew away.

To me he seemed a gentleman
he knew the rules, he knew the site
was quick to lend a helping hand
I think we'll miss that steady hand.

I never met this cyber friend
But rest in peace, poetic friend.


I do not manage the lines that end with the same word very well, but this Dahquain worked better than others I tried. Adieu, Mikey.
He sent the song to my profile. It is still there.
