If I were to write

(c) Gladiola Sotomayor

If indeed I were to write,

I’d write for you alone

but alack, it isn’t easy,

because dearest, neither are you.

You’re nothing like the lark,

or the rose or moon or summer’s day.

And comparing you would be

shaming you- a sin I dare not commit.

Thus being a lowly writer,

and taking the liberty of words,

if indeed I were to write,

I’d write that you are you.
