A Heart That Sings - Poem by Robert Murray Smith

love has chosen a heart
to sing

a tune that it has never
heard

beating fast, it goes into
a spin

as the loved one walks past
oblivious

taking his heart in his hands,
this young man, eighteen

speaks, 'Hi, I'm Pete, would you care
to go out?

the loved one, long ginger hair, blue eyes,
answers, 'Sure, my name is Prue.'

Pete is besides himself, barely remembering
his question

his heart now pounding, 'What about a coffee now? '

'Sure', she said without a beat, and into the future
they walked, as love attracts love
