Some People
Rachel Field


Isnít it strange some people make
You feel so tired inside,
Your thoughts begin to shrivel up
Like leaves all brown and dried!

But when youíre with some other ones,
Itís stranger still to find
Your thoughts as thick as fireflies
All shiny in your mind!

Oh, but everyone's lovable in their own pretty way. Ha! Maybe I say that because I'm to be put in the first group.

Yes, you can almost feel your mind yawn with the first ~ and 'run the race' with the second :)

Oh but most of us vary by the season, the day, hour,and wish we were one thing, but then we would be like that perfect lawn.

Brevity, robust rhymes, solid thought. What's to not like?
