David, I just heard you'd started writing poetry,
so it made my day to get your rhyming note -
the first time in this school a note's been passed to me.
I always wished a boy like you would like me too.
You're smart and cute . I want for you to know
I've also had my blue-green eyes on you!
I like to dance. Do you? I think that we should meet.
I bet that a great dancer you would be,
and someone going far in life, for you're so sweet!

(I imagine this scene when David was 13 and had
just started his interest in poetry,and as he wrote in
his bio, was also on his way to becoming a ballroom dancer!)
