Love Is
Like a strawberry Ice-cream,
That melts your pink heart,
But warms the chilled mind,
With oodles and oodles of
Sweet yum yum cream!

    This picture of ice-cream is so delicious!
    My favourite line - " But warms the chilled mind" .. so apt!

    The wonders and effect of love
    on one's heart and mind is vividly
    depicted on this short lovely
    poem.
    Beautifully crafted. Great metaphor and images..

    I've had other body parts tied, but never my tongue!

    a nice little love poem. but i prefer (and am better at writing) humor, , and....do you know? actually a poem including humor, , AND ice cream...would be perfect.

    i can 'speak to'** the effect of ice cream on my 'heart' and 'mind': i get fantastic effect(s) ! !

    ** i mean i can 'address the subject of'.

    mention of " oodles" makes me think: someone should make ice cream-flavored noodles.

    A great metaphorical poem on love and life is astutely delineated by you dear Dr Geeta madam. I remember thr glory of childhood when we were eating ice cream in group saying yum yum. According to your pen Love is more sweeter than oodles and oodles of sweet yum yum cream! Beautiful poem with attractive graphic.10

    Truly fantastic. Love need not be a serious business all the time. This poem shows us that there is a small child in everyone of us which loves to remain a child and makes its presence felt once in a while. Thanks, Geeta ji, for placing on record such innocence in this love poem of a different kind.
