Valentine's Verve

Alan R

There was more perfume

In the tram that night 

Flowers in men's hands

In women's eyes

Some had tulips, roses

Fancy little delights

Carrying them home tonight 

Their supposed answers 

To all the questions 

They may or may not have 

Asked out loud, but hey

We know how to play...

..Perfume, lingers around

And we follow like hounds 

Tonight, love is...

...More like a drug

Less like the bread

One needs a steady dealer

The other, a steady head

To get them all right...

...And then some might 

Bake bread together 

High on that perfume 

Mindful eyes, so plentiful 

Valentine's verve is beautiful.
