The Man in White

The Man in White

by Travis Baribeau.
The strangest thing happened
On the way to the bus
This story is true
So keep it ‘tween us
 .
A man in the park
All dressed in white
Told me a tale
Of the land beyond night
 .
Where magic and wonder
Dazzle the mind
From fairies to pixies
And sprites of all kind
 .
A place where your dreams
Always come true
flowers of fancy
And skies of pure blue
 .
He told me he’d been there
For thousands of years
That he wants to return now
His eyes filled with tears
 .
He came back to find
A love from his past
But time had unraveled
And moved much too fast
 .
He pulled from his pocket
A small leather book
He held it up high
And spoke as he shook
 .
In a flash of blue light
a rush of hot air
A deafening bang
He was no longer there
 .
It’s hard to believe
these things that I say
I needant be modest
it’s been quite the day
 .
This story I tell you
Does not contain lies
I saw it myself
With my very own eyes
