Today’s prompt: Take the phrase “Play (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem.

Play That Song Again

Play that song again
The one you first heard
From Dad’s car radio
During that long summer drive
All those years ago.

Listen now with older ears
To travel back there again
To sounds of simpler days,
Learn the lyrics once misheard
Or stubbornly keep your own words.

Play that song again
To turn back the clock
When the world goes too fast
And stop a minute to soak in
The comfort of music past.

Last year’s poem for Day 16: ‘The Wall’
