Rookie (Mwanza Tanzania)

Tell me

before you meet and tell me
how will I know you about me
how will I enjoy your company
how can I find out, a person you are

how can I take you on a date
how ca n I make out with you
how can i tell my self about you
have friend ship with you

if youn cant mee me out there
how can you do all these
dont fear just confident,
just meet me and tell me

your eyes betray you about me
I can read your window to soul
that you have something in you
just meet me and tell me

    I loved this, it almost has a creepy vibe about it. But we know its about a love from afar. If only they could see you, they would discover how much they love you. Its such a great subject, written about way too little. Please feel free to read and comment on my works too. Thank you

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.
