Do Men Also Wish To Be Courted


Contrary to what you've heard
What's been widely reported
Women aren't the only ones
Who dream of being courted

While women still seek to be the damsel
Locked many stories high in a tower
They deny it but like the man to have some power
Some romance, to guide and protect them as a tender flower

But men too have dreams it seems
Though little of them do they dare say
They dream of love and romance
But rarely feel true romance directed their way

So if you have a man you wish to hold hand-in-hand
If you wish him to love you and understand
If you love him and he makes your heart swoon
Show him love, in little ways while still giving him some room

If you are to be his queen
and him to be your knight
Give him romance and courtship
And he'll strive to treat you right

Know that when they lay their heads down
and dream about you at night
Men dream in color
Not in black and white

Poem of the Day

poet Anne Bradstreet

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,
Childhood and Youth, the Many and Old age:
The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
