Around Every Corner

As I was driving down the eastern terminus of the Old National Road, it occurred to me…

Around Every Corner
by Michael Doyle

Around every corner
There is a story
Down every street
Hiding from its glory

Just a bit of
Getting through and by
Lost and found love
Flown over or driven by

Hidden behind gates
Or on the road side
Twist of luck and fate
Full of nothing but full of pride

There's at story for the telling
Spoken in the voice of you and me
Waiting for its moment of revealing
Mumbled out with stumbled pout to see

That around every corner
There is an untold story
Driven down the street
Be it in the garden or in the quarry

It's waiting to be built
Up enough with a careless word toss
It's in the hand that's dealt
There's a gain in every loss
