A Secret - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

They tease
And wonder
Why I am smiling so
And humming happy tunes under my breath
And why the strut's back in my walk...
But I won't tell them
Because if I do
Everyone would want
A little piece of this heaven too.
So I'll just keep right on smiling
And struting
And humming happy tunes under my breath
And keeping you a secret all to myself!
