Happy Valentine’s Day
Roses are red, cookies are too
Unless they are chocolate and so filled with goo.
But I picked the red heart with sugar and spicing
Then nibbled the part and licked off the icing.
It didn’t last long and was gone in a flash
Like Cupid, his arrow, with a bit of panache.
My sugar high fixed, my sweetie is ready
For that’s when I’ll wear that red, silky teddy.
It’s a surprise and a wonder what a cookie will do
When love’s on the line and the sentiment’s true.
Like flowers or candy will work just as well
In a bed and breakfast or a ritzy hotel.
Closed off from the world, get back in touch
Spend the weekend curled up, not a thing is too much.
