by Susan Marie Davniero.
I look back rather to find
My youth left far behind
When record discs spun around
Dancing about to the rockin’ sound
Songs that spoke of peace and love
This teenage girl found plenty of
And when self could do no wrong
I listen silently to a ballad song
Musical score records my fate
The songs play on to future dates
Bade farewell to carefree ways
To my early Rock and Roll days
Yet when act two comes along
I find the music still rocks on
Songs that I didn’t forget
The party isn’t over yet!
