Symptoms of Love

The girl:
The glance, the giggle

The walking wiggle

The wink so pert

This is a flirt.

The boy:
Attraction at first sight

Wanting, with all his might

A return or acknowledgement

That he thinks she’s heaven sent



Love at this teen age

Is different for a sage

Less obvious and more discreet

First wanting just to meet.

Learned ways to romance

Years of practice make the dance.



Aging romance has a chance

No need to flirt or prance

Let your intended know

You’re ready for a show

Of affection, or just a friend

Whatever, with age, it doesn’t end.
