'Me and Colt' are juniors in high school


from "These Fair Days"

Blue Moon


Me and Colt

are stretched out on the hood
leanin’ comfortable against the windshield


sippin’ beer
and admirin’ the stars.
Colt’s half pickin’ on his guitar


and we’re talkin’ on life and the ladies

and circumstances
and rodeoin’ and other subjects


too numerous to mention.

We’re not reachin’ any great conclusions
just enjoyin’ the peacefulness and the contentment


that comes every now and again.
It ain’t my intention to let this night slip by unacknowledged.

Must be a wonderful company: you and Colt. I can picture the two people vividly. 'Peacefulness and contentment' in nights like those are something to cherish.

No, never let a night like that slip away without acknowledgement. I feel that I have been sitting nearby, back against a tree, maybe, listening to you expounding on life, ladies and so on. What a wonderful carefree memory to share.

I just imagine the scenary while playing guitar.. Great! Tthank u for sharing😀
