Tin Man What have I to offer thee? I have nothing more than me No riches nor am I well known A quiet mien is all I own A gentle heart is what I bare In solitude it’s all I wear Peaceable in all my days Parsing life’s fickle ways And what have I to do with thee? Whose very nature captures me? Snared by sweet and smiling glances Whose fair and comely eye entrances Would that I could be more brave Like some impudent knave And win anon the moment’s pause Despite all my lacking flaws To speak with undaunted pitch And break this lasting tongue-tied stitch To dream of daring chosen words And risk expressing hopeful chords But, tell this idle time goodbye Dreaming of a life gone by And of a chance I once let slide Rusting from the rain inside.
