Waiting To Love
Bowen Oliver, Northholm Grammar School
A schoolyard crush, could be more?
To young to feel? To hate?
More importantly, to love?
Superior feelings, irrelevant
Pursue, hearts contented, outsmarted
Waiting till the day, that day
Flowers, photos, exchange oh woe
How long? Questions bubbling
A short pause, blessed proposal
The faun smiles and he heads
Heads back to the lamppost, all the while
Did you notice him?
