My Valentine, In Hindsight

Prompt: Thanks, Hindsight
How is the year shaping up for you so far?

strong foot

February 14

My love is like a red, red rose
With velvet skin and thorny toes.
…Now that’s not true, his feet are heaven,
Soft, with toes of three and seven.
That’s ‘ten’ in case you cannot add,
That’s just how many toes he had.
And still does have, I’m trying to rhyme,
It’s tricky as I’m short of time.

But still, my love has silken eyes,
Whate’er that means, and when he sighs,
My heart leaps up—but that’s not so
‘Cause that can mean he’s doesn’t know
What’s in my head, and that frustrating
And not a state worth celebrating.
But when he sighs for love of me,
Then my heart plays a symphony.

My lord, this poem has gone astray,
But I’m not done, please let me say:
His hair is mostly there, and grey,
And when he laughs, I want to pray
And thank the gods for his accent
Which is of Lancashire descent.
For when I want to smash his face,
He’ll drop an H, and we’ll embrace.

My love is like a red, red rose
With velvet skin, and thorny toes.

  1. 😂 BRAVO !
    I laughed so hard,
    I shed some tears..
    It seems your love,
    Has lasted many years..
    For who else could write,
    Such funny prose,
    About her love,
    With 3 and 7 toes ?
    A woman who’s been,
    With him thru thick n thin,
    Could write such a poem,
    That makes us grin..
