Lovely Day
We got up late
Nowhere to be
The Sunday paper
Hardly read

You fixed the eggs
I fed the dog
We saw no need
To plan ahead

Breakfast cooking
And the sound of laughter
No one looking
No one cleaned up after

And I believe that
In almost every way
It was such a lovely day

The afternoon
Awash in sun
The living room
All shades of gold

Great conversation
On the state of the world
Miles Davis
On the stereo

Twilight toasted
With a glass of wine
The local take out
Place would do just fine

And I believe that
In almost every way
It was such a lovely day

If only we could save this day
In a bottle or a jar
We could open it and live it again
And be just the same as we are
