Listening to every heart
A short reply in black and blue
to make a response there to read,
I see before me a fellow who
is not a friend in need.
For I only know him through written word,
funny, cute, kind or sincere,
never would I think him absurd,
but only as our own special brand of 'Deer.
He poses questions never silly,
and professes through word to teach,
his thought process never willy-nilly;
if I could hear him, I'd like his speech.
I've learned much from ol' 'Deer's prose,
come to find out what he knows,
and we've just scratched the surface near
to what he could teach, our good 'ol 'Deer.
So to see him through his eyes, you bet!
a comet on the fly;
for to catch his goodness in my net,
'tis guaranteed I'm gonna try.
Look, then, into thine heart, and write ~~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
