Treasure Island

Edward Iacona

(August 27,1948 / Brooklyn, New York)

Magic Words


There are many magic words
When we have the predilection
For expressing our deepest thoughts
To the object of our affection.

Don't worry if you're word impaired
Cause it isn't very hard
To borrow the words of poets
Including Avon's bard.

If that is not your style
One really can't go wrong
With the music and lyrics
Of a well selected song.

And, within our wireless age
There's no need to be perplexed
Consider the joys of Voicemail
Or, if you must, just text.

You can say them or sing them
Shout out loud or mutter them.
If emotions overcome you
One may have to stutter them.

When it comes to magic words
There is no one way to utter them
No matter which way you choose
You should not ever shutter them.

Then there will be other times
When mutual impulses call
And magic words may be spoken
But are not needed at all.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
