If I...


If I whispered to you at midnight
Just to see if you'd make a sound
Would you stir in the moonlight
In your yellow-flowered, summer gown

If I questioned you in the morning
Just to see what you have to say
About the news that you find informing
From the TV with the liquid crystal display

If I called you later that day
Just to see how you're doing
Would you tell me all-in-all okay
Except for a cup handle needs gluing

If I inquired how you felt at night
Just to see if you're worn-down
Would you smile and say all-right
But not up for a night-on-the-town

If I said I love you at bedtime
Just to see your beautiful smile
Would you have peace-of-mind
And believe it's all been worthwhile

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
