this indistinctive chattering,
is not just to show he's there,
oh yes he does quite love to sing,
and much loves to fill the air,
but once you look behind his words,
into his flittering eyes,
you'll see that he is bearing hurt,
a most unwelcome surprise.
so listen, you, quite carefully
to bountiful thoughts conveyed,
for while he banters joyfully,
his fears you can allay.
display not a reproachful glance,
but a countenance of delight,
for this kind man needs just this chance,
or else he'll take his flight.
