          Affairs of the Heart

As twins we knew without a doubt
We'd always help each other out
We shared a twinly point of view
We each knew what we each must do

When we were in our first grade class
We learned to read so we could pass
A reading test the teacher said
Would help to make us all well-read

My sister's turn then came to read
Her silence signaled me the need
To stand before the class and utter
"Teacher, she can't help but stutter."

With pain I watched her face turn read
Occasioned by the words I'd said
Oh, how I wished I could erase
Those words which now seemed out of place

We know the scarecrow suffered pain
Because he thought he had no brain
Sometimes it is not very smart
To try to think with just the heart

Reviewed by Birgit and Roger Pratcher 2/13/2006
This is a very touching write and so true, how often do we indeed regret the words we speak, even if we meant well.
