Concealed and Revealed #2






Query:
Tell me,
What is it that roused in your eyes
The sparkle that roused in my thought
Want of you
Darling, I cannot explain or surmise
The things that a sudden, soft half-smile
Will do

Reply;
Sweetheart,
I’ll tell you but only in silence
Words are too petty for
Moments like this
My little half-smile
Was stirred by your presence
Would I be too forward
To try for
A kiss?
