If I can just get her down on paper
It will knock your socks into Tuesday next week
Woodpeckers will stop pecking to cheer
Babies will sleep through the night
SUVs will be carbon neutral
Football fans will spend hours praising their favorite ref's best calls
If I can only coax her out:
Come get some vitamin D!
See the laser beams of sunshine, my poem!
Black, red, gold, brown, blue
Any ink will do
I want to show you the world
But most of all I just want to read you.
