two days


we had such a lovely day of it

a week ago   so much so 

that we reprised the day


down to ordering the same food

at the same restaurant

topping it off with the same desserts


such a day   and such a following day

is unlikely to happen again

not with the same flavors

and not with the same mackerel skies


if I put these days into words

it may reinforce the memory

of two almost ordinary days

which   otherwise   would surely be lost

Reminds me of that song by Lou Reed - Perfect Day

You've written a delightful poem

Probably. It was a good idea to preserve them, and do so elegantly.
