Don’t Say With Your Eyes Only

Beneath a tree of hollies
Alone my love and me
I coo in words you only
Will ever hear from me.

Your eyes they tell a story
Love of the purest breed
They speak in allegories
Each time you stare at me.

Like honey to the belly
Are words of love spoken
Don’t say with your eyes only
The love you have for me
