Wondrous morning (for Writer's Island)

The station's little coffee shop
Was open today
It never had been before
Wondrous it was
Covered in pictures
Of old movie stars
Marilyn Monroe
Frank Sinatra
James Dean
Many I didn't even know by name
And when after he served me
The owner started playing
An old record of his
"Do you whisper to an angel
or do you just say I love you?"
The dawning morning transformed
Into a scene out of time
And when the eyes of a stranger
Met mine
I was bewitched
Just for a second.
