A Love Poem for Nicola
This isn't just a schoolboy craze,
'He'll get over it in a couple of days'
Wasn't that what you said or some similar phrase?
But this isn't just a schoolboy craze!
And it isn't just a passing phase,
Not when I look at you and when I gaze
Upon your hair where the sunlight plays,
No, it isn't just a passing phase.
I love you and I want to praise
Your graceful movements and your special ways,
Just so long as you realise
This isn't just a schoolboy craze! !
