5. THE JAVANESE

I must confess
I’ve suffered,
Haven’t you?
My love
Before
I had even heard
Of you,
My love.

Whatever we both might say,
Dancing on the Javanaise.
We were in love,
If only for the length of a song.

In your own words,
What
Have we seen
Of love?
It’s obvious to me,
I stand here tricked
My love.

Whatever we both might say,
Dancing on the Javanaise.
We were in love,
If only for the length of a song.

Alas, April’s wind
Led me
In vain
to love.
I looked at you
I thought that
I could find
That love

Whatever we both might say,
Dancing on the Javanaise.
We were in love,
If only for the length of a song.

My life is hardly
Worth
Living
Without love.
Seems things
are just the way
you wanted them
My love.

Whatever we both might say,
Dancing on the Javanaise.
We were in love,
If only for the length of a song.
