Example Poem

Maybe   (Sonnetina Cinque)

A gentleman must always know
A "maybe" spoken by his date
means actions planned "might" have to wait.
While "yes" is clear and signals " go,
"Maybe" seems meaning "yes,but slow."

She needs some help and time to think
which will be moot if you inspire
emotionally ignited fire.
A "maybe's" changed with just a wink
and kisses helped along with drink.
