And, through the open window, see!
You! Standing at the barre!
About as lovely as can be,
How full of poise you are!

You stretch up high and bend down low
And stare off into space,
As if you know all there’s to know
Of culture, style and grace.

And, meeting in your classmates’ sight,
We’re careful not to kiss;
The public hasn’t earned the right
To see our endless bliss.

But, when we’re home and close the door,
We love each other all the more.
