The Iron complained,
You weren’t strong enough to pull me to you.
Said the Magnet to the Iron:
I could only attract you,
But you have to yield & move.
Said the Iron: my Will could’ve
by your attraction,
But you didn’t.
Replied the Magnet: I didn’t
Lest you resist & I lose your friendship too.
But you could’ve leapt & clung.
Said the Iron: my baggage was
Too heavy to leap or cling;
And Your attraction was weak to pull me to your side.
Reticently they’d borne their Love,
Undisclosed to the addressees.
Casked, distilled and bottled – forever.
