The Tongue-Tied Lover

Published: January 29, 2019

I ask the heav'nly stars above
how I might send thee words of love -
for my impov'rished words won't do
when sending words of love to you.

A birthday shortly comes your way,
and I'm in complete disarray
whilst seeking clever words to say
on what will be your special day.

Hark! Cupid counsels - "Do not fret,
I'll make a poet of you yet,
and whilst you'll never be a bard,
go buy your love a birthday card."

"Pen words directly from your heart
writ with Cupid's finest dart -
there's one more thing that you must do -
ensure your words of love are true."

Now, I took Cupid at his word.
To my delight, my words were heard
I never penned a poem more fair
these words of love I wrote for her.

That special birthday's come and gone.
Soon you and I will be as one.
One final vow I make in rhyme.
I'll cherish thee till the end of time.

There are times one comes across poetry that captivates the heart,
creeps inside never to depart...

Wonderful!!!

An exquisite ace of diamonds classic
that only a magician could magic
'Tis hoped the recipient of this fine art
Felt the charm caressing her trembling heart.

Soft voiced emotive tender affection
expressed in most heartwarming perfection
Truly this has to be work of a Bard
A moving rendition to a love's heart.
