R. K. Hart
Lovers and Loving
Lovers float gently past Lilly pads flowering,
Swans pass in pairs long necks caressing.
Stealing behind her parasol for a kiss are sweet hearts,
A couple share a basket of small sandwiches and sweet tarts.
Lovers pass secretive love letters on perfumed paper,
Another passes a red red rose with scented vapor.
Lovebirds are seen both walking to and tho,
She stares into his eyes with the eyes of a doe.
On a swing, she sits high into the air,
When hearts are in love life has no care.
Couples plan futures according to their dreams,
A romantic park can be where futures flow as streams.
But perhaps a place of romance for you is out of reach,
Romance like a beast must feed, so let imagination teach.
With flowers in hand go to your door, when she answers say,
'Hello young lady, I have some flowers for your mother today'.
