Tom's Poem (From Plastic)

    Tom's Poem (from Plastic)

Note: in the novel Plastic high school students are writing love poems.  This is Tom's.  

     To Diana

She does not fear the public gaze
But shuns the private heart
For she alone is wild and free
And beautiful and fey is she
And in the wilds she spends her days
And holds herself apart.

Those lips no tongue will ever part,
No hand will ever feel her heart.
What sacrifice, what hero's task
Would melt her ice, would break her mask?

Is she too full of fear and pride
To let another by her side?
None but her mirror will ever know
The glory of her passion's glow,
But we who see her can admire
The embers of her hidden fire.
