Awaited and Lost in one Stutter
While waiting, make sure you are ready.
"Star bright, starlight, first star I see tonight...."
For dozens of years he had waited,
for the girl of his dreams to appear.
One day finally a maiden,
whispered softly, “I am here.”
It shocked him so much
that he stuttered:
"Whh…whhha,,,what, ttoo, ttoo, took…
yuh, yuuh, you…suh, suh so long?"
He forgot to raise his inflection
in asking his question sincere;
so that all she got from his question
was the ending, and abruptly disappeared.
