As Valentines Approaches

As Valentines approaches
Girls finger brooches
Wondering which one to wear.
“Is that dress
Too short?
Or ought I
To show more thigh?”

Sit alone
And, reaching for the telephone
Make calls To girls who

Have nothing to do
Other than to play
At Valentines, for a day.


When A Young Lady Who Is Divine

Flowers In A Jar

Venus’s star
Will shine bright
On flowers in a jar.

Lovers will raise

For they
being artificial, can not fade away

How life does run
Soon Valentines will have come
And gone
As the pendulum swings on.

I doubt tomorrow will be fine
Yet women and wine
Are surely divine?
The line
Betwixt leg and skirt.
Lonleness does hurt.
Will she stay
On Valentine’s day?
