It is funny how a song can conjure up an image… or a memory. Pretty strongly, really.
Donna Summer passed away today. I don’t know that much about her as a person. She died of cancer and she was only 62 years old. I hope her family and friends can find peace.
But a few of the songs she made, sure do hold a lot of memories for me. Big recollections. College especially… and some there after.
There is something you should know about me. It seems that I crack myself up sometimes. I don’t mean to do it. But… it just happens. So this song…. is really something… I’ll tell you.
I would sing this at the top of my lungs. And then laugh and laugh.
“Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it
’cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
And there you have it.
I guess… ..
If you can’t be the poet… be the poem.
