Message In A Bottle

Today is National Poetry Day – be sure to join in!

This year’s theme is messages…

When I was but a teenage boy,
I left a message in a bottle.
I wasn’t one for thinking then,
Living life full throttle.

I tossed it far off to the sea,
Watched it float away.
Wondering who would find it:
What on earth they’d say!

Much to my surprise,
Years later, fully grown,
The postie brought my bottle back:
“Return to sender:
address unknown
