To The Over-Tender Poem by Tony Jennett

To The Over-Tender

Rating: 3.9
 


The mind and heart sustain contusions
By jumping to the wrong conclusions
And intellect, perhaps, divines
Too much by reading twixt the lines
When aim and end you think you know
A kiss may hurt more than a blow
If I sent roses, newly born
Would you, .dear friend, see but the thorn?

Love the last line, sent a rose would you see the thorn. How true of some.
