My quizzical re-action
to this physical attraction is;
‘Whatever is it, draws me to him so?’
…I just don’t know.

He isn’t tall and handsome
for, in stocking-feet, he stands some
four-foot-three and
I am nearly six-foot-two
…quite hard to woo

but he’s learned to jump quite high,
so he can look me in the eye
and I haven’t dropped him
more than once or twice
…and he’s so nice

about it. I can shout it
from the roof-tops,
that this is the man I love
…Heaven’s above!

How is it that I find
that I don’t really mind
the jutting of the ears?
…not altogether.

because the love he shows,
ignores the blight of my big nose
and sees me as a beauty
…well, I never!

  1. That’s a constructive comment. Be interesting to see some of your poetry and leave some similar in-depth, intelligent feedback

  2. Thank you for your own efforts on this website. Kate loves setting aside time for internet research and it’s easy to see why. We all know all about the lively means you offer worthwhile strategies via this blog and therefore foster response from some others on this theme so our own simple princess is actually being taught a lot of things. Take advantage of the remaining portion of the year. You are always conducting a first class job.
