All English Sonnets
On Seeing My Neighbor Go for A Walk
With His Teenage Girl
This morning when I saw you with your dad
Go walking, deep in conversation, Botched,
Were all my feelings but my heart was glad
To see your person. I have daily watched.
Your lovely gestures and sparkling eyes,
And from your moving lips, I have guessed,
Your questions, thoughtful and your wise replies.
Your sensuous person I have thus assessed.
Ah! to the shadows of my window glued,
I see you daily and I get confused;
And think that you are still to pain unused,
With which my very marrow is tattooed.
But when you grow it would bother you,
I hate to say, but what I say is true.
