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! !

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
