Senior Scribes...
Poetry with a Heart... for Valentine’s Day
By Lois Wilson  
January  23, 2012 

Our Senior Scribes ‘Poet Laureate’ has a word or two to say about just about every special occasion. The day set aside each year for lovers is no different. Here, she gives you three completely different approaches to the traditional Valentine’s Day observance. County News Online is pleased to offer you the following: 

HAVE A HEART 

On other occasions, I like any card,

Even comical ones picked in a rush.

But, Dearest, choose with romantic regard

My valentine—in each line MAKE MINE MUSH! 

     Lois E. Wilson

CALL TO ARMS 

Her name is Tara Mai.

She spells it M-A-I.

Tara dated a guy

With a wandering eye.

 

To prove to her he was true,

He pledged, “I’ll get a tattoo—

A red heart placed in plain view

With your name written in blue.”

 

She thought, “Two can play this game,”

And said, “Yes, put on my name

But exactly as I want—

Letters reversed back to front.

It will be a secret sign

Of lasting love—yours and mine.”

 

Now the guy’s lost all his charm,

And his cheating has gone flat.

For it reads on his left arm

In bright blue: “I AM A RAT.”

SHOP TILL YOU DROP 

Arvette was an avid shopper.

Her boyfriend found this improper.

He saw how his honey

Ran through all the money—

So he decided to drop her!
