Wall Plate at the Regal
By David Smith January 30, 2010
A turquoise blue, a Pontiac, I see
Triggers a childhood memory.
Back in the fifties when grandparents were young
New cars were a dream and new visions begun.
A turquoise blue, a dream from the past
Reflecting back, if that hope could last.
To live life to the fullest
Manufacture it well
A plate on the wall and have a story to tell.
A Blue Pontiac catches my eye;
Got out of the rut, new experiences to try;
In at the Regal;
If we can do it once, we can do it again;
New ideas will flourish, live past the pain.
No time for discouragement;
Press on to the youth;
Dreams and expectations
Put them through the roof.
What good are low hopes, I heard her once say
Make the most of each minute
Get on with each day.
A wall plate at the Regal, memory hits a nerve.
Success on the table; HOPE we can serve.
