Present

by Eric Y. Theriault

What would you think;
if I presented you with a rose?
Which words would roll of your sweet, tender lips?

What would you think;
if I presented you twelve?
Would your beautiful eyes shead a year?
And would that tear by glorious?

What would you think;
if I called to offer dinner?
Would you wonder who I am?
or would you recognize and say yes?
