i’m certain i’d scare you straight

i’m certain i’d scare you straight
‘cuz can you smile without fear—

o who can love you, unconscious
and who can’t bear your stare!

shy eyes tell the world
“i’m yours”—

and I’m too fierce from far away,
and only, so close, so gentle—

who wears his heart on his sleeve,
and who’s shield shines on;

chivalrous was the champion
of hearts and men—
