Balcony and Doorway

someplace in Italy
while walking on
this old street

a vision of a balcony

someplace a young girl
might sigh about her 
real or imaginary love


poets might write sonnets
about the words she'd say
maybe (indeed) a three act play

romeo romeo (why romeo)
all the trouble he'd be
sure to cause

a strutting boy
with sword in hand
(why love her romeo)
she wants to understand


balconies are good too
they say for watching stars

falling stars foretell doom

and sure it comes
oh foolish girl-child 
go straight to your room
