THEY QUICKLY LOOKED AWAY

The boy sat alone while, across the aisle, A girl sat blushing at his smile. Their eyes would meet, then dance apart; Because of fear inside their hearts They quickly looked away. The beggar limped across the street, With tattered coat and ragged feet. A rich man who was walking by Glanced that beggar in the eye And quickly looked away. The pilot taxied toward the strip; He scanned his charts and planned his trip. The gauge was in the danger zone, But, in a hurry toward his home, He quickly looked away. The boy and girl stayed lonely; The beggar soon had died; They finally found the pilot's plane Against a mountainside. How often times it happens, We look to the past and say; ""I wonder how it might have been Had I not looked away.""
