"Penguins and Pebbles"

Source

Some penguins sing,
and some penguins dance.
Some penguins gather pebbles,
to show their romance.
If I could sing you a love song,
I'd sing you one straight from the heart,
and if I could dance to it,
I'd make it a work of art.
But I'm not great in these things,
my words may fall short,
I might fall, I might stumble,
I might hurt you in retort.
But what I say and what I mean,
are usually two different things.
I hope my love's not measured by,
the pebbles I bring.
So I write you a poem,
and hope you understand.
I can only give so much,
and I give as much as I can.
I give you my heart,
I'd give the world if I could,
Every single pebble I can muster,
to drop at your foot.

I liked your little poem. And I like penguins. You must like them too because you know about the pebbles. Thanks.
