Finding old stuff

It's a challenge to clean out a desk. If I could do it blindfolded, I'd get it done quicker. But how would THAT work? Trouble is, as I go through the desk I discover all kinds of neat stuff I forgot I had (or didn't know I had).

For example, I found some old "love poems." You know, that embarrassing stuff you squirrel away after it's served it's useful purpose. I'm referring to the "If You Had A Wish" poem I wrote for Ruth during our courtship days, way, way, back in 1979. Yikes!

So I dusted it off and posted it at gotverse.blogspot.com the place where I post my (or sometimes others) poetry.

It's a bit sappy, but was fun to write. Although, she probably didn't marry me for my gift of verse, or lack thereof, it MIGHT have helped.
