60. LASS

When a man has interest in your welfare
And the world’s deepest emotions to care.
Not to swamp you’re individual but to hope
To see your wondrous smile this is rare.

How is it then he must play chess
Between others to find his chances,
While the queen hides comfortably
As when darkness swamped the daisy.

If you could just tell me
What is your heart’s desire.
I could find an end
To the black daisies bend.

For when you wish to care
You must realize to do such is rare,
Fragile and determinedly dare
To be fair to him and his words of care.
