Through the screen door her eyes rose with mine
feverishly I rehearsed each romantic word in my mind
caught in a tongue tie still desperately I searched
luckily for me the spring flowers had just birthed
along the leading pathway to the doorway of dreams
I turned for one moment falling to my knees
plucked nine white roses setting them at her feet
still without a word sweat streaming down in beads
I caught my first breath and quickly ran away.....
