Don'T Tell Us, Tell Him! - Poem by Denis Martindale

We've heard her say that she's in love,
Or that she thinks she is,
Of course, that isn't near enough
For two hearts to find bliss...
The boy-in-question doesn't know,
He hasn't got a clue,
But all she has to do is go
And blurt out, 'I love you! '

It's true, she's shy, she's always been,
But that's a poor excuse,
Especially if, when you're quite keen,
On someone you could choose...
To get to know that special one,
That's what life's all about,
It's finding facts that's half the fun,
But she can't sort things out!

We tell her straight, to take a chance,
That first step's not so hard,
It's like the first step of a dance,
One foot and not a yard...
So why can't she and why won't she
Admit and not employ
The lovesick words of poetry
And simply TELL THE BOY!
