I Always Will

by Yvonne Blake  
2/14/2008 / Poetry

Little Johnny thought Mary
Was the prettiest thing.
He pulled her pigtails
And made her scream.

He shot her with spitballs
And rubber bands
And walked upside down
Upon his hands.

"I love you, Mary,
I always will."
Then chased her down
Over Crabapple Hill.

She stuck out her tongue,
Said, "Go away!
You're a silly pest, Johnny,
I don't want to play."

He followed her everywhere
He wrote her notes,
He carried her books,
And held her coats.

"I love you, Mary,
I always will."
He gave her a kiss
On Crabapple Hill.

He often brought daisies
Or sang her a song.
He was always there
The whole day long.

At times, she shunned him;
She pushed him away.
He never got angry
Nor tried to repay.

"I love you, Mary,
I always will.
I keep my word,
My promises fill."

Mary's dimples faded,
Her cheeks soft instead.
Her dark, curly braids,
Wrapped about her head.

His cheeks got wrinkled;
And his head grew hoary.
He smiled to himself,
And repeated his story.

"I love you, Mary,
I always will."
They strolled through the grass
On Crabapple Hill.

Mary blushed at his words,
And wiped away a tear,
"You hopeless fool,
You're a silly old dear."

Johnny smiled as she
Gave him a peck.
She wrapped her thin arms
About his neck.

"I love you, Mary,
I always will."
Reads the cold, white stone
On Crabapple Hill.
