***With smiles and poetry

by A. Paige White

If I were a secret admirer
What kind of card would I leave?

Addressed, sealed and delivered
Not a handwritten word, unsigned

What would the message be?
Something the unknown heard, from me

Written once on the front
Twice insideā€¦ oh what would that message be?

Delivered quickly, left deftly
admired with smiles and poetry

If I were a secret admirer
would I say?

IF I were a secret admirerer, I would print this out and give it to the one I want. It would be much appeciated! It just might make ALL the difference in the world!

I agree with the first two comments. I like the subtle playfulness of this one, and the closing line; leaving the word 'what' out gives the line a different meaning in tune with what comes before.

Clever girl!

Intriguing from start to finish. Oh, to go back to the scented envelope arriving with the seal waxed and decorative, the contents waiting. Thanks, Paige.

to keep or not to keep it secret, that is the question every admirer has to ask themselves in secret. and yet it is so painful to retain the secret, especially if you admire this person so much and beyond admiration.
