Valentine's Day At The Florist's

Rating: 4.9
'Good Morning Sir, what would you like?
A single rose perhaps or more,
Wrapped beautifully in cellophane,
With card and bows galore'

'She'll love you for the thought Sir,
I recommend the red,
They'll be delivered too, Sir,
Yes, I'll sign it', ' Love from Ted'.

'I know the cost is high, Sir,
But 'quality's the thing,
Especially with roses,
Think of all the love they bring.

'We go for the 'Wow' factor,
Did I mention this before? ,
Oh, Yes, I think I did, Sir,
Well if you're really sure'.

'A mixture would be fine, Sir,
Maybe yellow would be nice,
With one red rose in the centre,
To add a bit of spice'.

'Oh Yes, I do agree, Sir,
She really will be thrilled,
She'll love you just the same Sir',
(If not a little chilled!) .

'Well thank you Sir, for your order,
We aim to always see
That our customers are happy.
Any queries to ask? Feel free'.

'So do please accept our card, Sir,
Just telephone, please do,
For, you may need more flowers sent,
Of a 'specific' hue'.

'Goodbye now Sir and thank you,
Do have a pleasant day,
We hope you'll call again, Sir,
When you are down our way'.

A hint of the right sort of dirrection for him, a great poem sent out as a fine bouquet of flowers to admire, I have so enjoyed this, to change or re -arrange this would take away some of its meaning, love Duncan

Ernestine...you spin out the words with great fluidity, but there needs to be some pain here, the kind we all live with. My broken heart is the backbone of almost all the poems I write even though I don't write love poems. Take a risk. Get mad at someone in a poem. Beautiful poems often have ugly subjects. Poetry is about raw feelings and the beauty of the language-like beauty and the beast. You have the beauty, now you need the beast and the underworld to balance it out. I hope I'm making sense. Your language skills are sharp, so you have a chance.
