You came – determined because I was l

You came –
determined
because I was large
because I was roaring
but on close inspection
you saw a mere boy.
You seized
and snatched away my heart
and began
to play with it –
like a girl with a bouncing ball.
And before this miracle
every woman
was either a lady astounded
or a maiden inquiring
"Love such a fellow?
Why he""ll pounce on you!
She must be a lion tamer
a girl from the zoo!"
But I was triumphant.
I didn""t feel it –
the yoke!
Oblivious with joy
I jumped
and leapt about a bride happy redskin
I felt so elated
and light.
