  1. How does Juliet compare
    to the warmth and light of the sun,
    to the enchantment of the full moon,
    to the blue beyond the clouds?

    Those wonders are far away, but
    with lights in blue eyes, with kisses
    Juliet is as close as
    God would have us be.

    But I wonder about
    Marie in the storm:
    she is prettier in comparison,
    more exciting like a lightning strike

    Marie thinks I’m like thunder,
    Juliet feels that I’m rain

    They both like the other John for now
    but they both write a lot of “Dear John” letters

    And the new John is much better than the old John.
    Shall I compare them or
    butter-up my betters
