If you want to see a memory,
Here’s something you should know,
To grasp it tight or pin it down
Just won’t work, but lo!
The trick is this- just play it loose,
It magically slides into view-
And when right quick you cast a glance,
You can observe the past anew.
A memory is like a cloud
That steals across the sky.
It simply won’t stay still for long,
No matter what you try.
