Say That Again!

Out of the clear blue
As they say
Thunderstruck I was
By the sheer size of it
Where the corn grows high
Larger than life
I looked up to it
So I pinched myself
To see if I was dreaming
And it dawned on me
‘Twas the night
And I had been had
By the farthest stretch of the imagination.

Except for one expression that I put on two lines, each line in the poem is a common expression I’ve heard a million times before. (I broke up “so I pinched myself to see if I was dreaming” into two lines.)

My poem “Oh, Give Me a Home” is also written this way.
