The Love of Jack

Once there was a woman
Who caught Jack’s eye

And though his friends
the Night Wind
The North Star
and Borealis
Told him
His touch would burn her
Told him such passions were madness
Told him to act his age
Jack just couldn’t stop thinking
About . . .
About a forbidden kiss

And so that night
When she went walking
Without a hat
He saw her in the halo
Of a street lamp
He followed her
And decided ten thousand times
To leave her alone
Until she stopped
And looked right at him

And she smiled
She asked him for his kiss
And he flew beyond the stars
For it was revealed in his heart
That he would rather hurt himself
Then ever hurt her

But every now and then
In the coming light of morning
In the lower part of her window
A perfectly drawn heart of Frost
