Ellen's Beautiful Eyes


Can I tell you of Ellen's beautiful eyes
And of her small hands so neat and pretty?
I watch those fingers as a knot she ties
Yet she's not noticed my audacity
Or does she perceive me watching her
Sitting out here wondering what she'd think?
Should she look up and catch me unaware
Would she frown to make my poor heart sink?
Why was I afraid she'd not look on me?
For now she grins and flicks her jet black hair
Then lowers her eyes lest others also see
It is not long before we become a pair
How I'm glad I looked at Ellen back then
For we are now both in seventh heaven

  1. It was in proper timing Ellen looked at you, Robin. It may sound cliched, but as they say, the rest is history. I like how you talk about the details , the way you observe her.

    PS

    glad you liked the book "strange weather in tokyo". if you got the chance, please read Yoko Ogawa's "The Housekeeper and the Professor"

  3. One is always afraid of disappointments! But when positive signs are revealed and seen then love can be pursued relentlessly!
