Hi All: It's been quite a while since we had a new fun thread. We've had a ball in past years with everyone joining in.

It's a great way to meed new friends who have joined us and hone our rhyming skills (even if you think you don't have any!)

Since Valentines day is fast approaching, I thought it would be fun to post your favorite original love poem in honor of the occasion....but it MUST rhyme! It can be humourous, sappy, or full of pathos...you decide.

Let's have some fun!

Bea

for old times and silliness sake...
Oh Valentine please be mine
Sappy thought yet lamer line.
Day on in or day on out
Want you still whats that about?
Cross your legs untangle the heart
Little girls cry and big boys fart
hey just wanted to say I wrote
but this isnt a lovey dovey note
So there Miss Bea, Ive come around
Silly voice but a joyful sound!

Yay....Nae's back!!!! Soo happy to see you here again my friend.

Things will be getting a little hotter around here now that you're back with your "special"
tittilating brand of poetry.

Thanks for being the first to respond to this thread...it takes time for some people to get their feet wet!

Love ya,

The Thread - Love Poem
Since you're all a little bashful to put your heart on display for all to see, here is my entry...a really sappy one I wrote for our 40th Wedding anniversay 6 weeks before my husband passed away. It's still my favorite!

THE FINAL JOURNEY

Come follow me, my love
And well walk hand in hand
As the hourglass of time
Measures the swiftly flowing sand

I see you standing there
So handsome, young and bold
We vowed that when our youth was spent
Together wed grow old

To honor and to cherish
We pledged from the heart
Keeping only to each other
We vowed right at the start

Now forty years have flown, my love
Too swiftly theyve rolled by
I treasure every moment
Im not ready to say goodbye

But when our journey is over
And the Lord says we must part
Ill carry the memory of your love
Deep within my heart

Poetry Thread
She stood before me
In all her might and glory,
A supernova phantom of delight;
Her eye refused but mine to see,
Those ears but hear my story,
That kiss to mine claimed right.

Sweet her whisper in the shade,
Sweeter that kiss on my lip,
Though many felt, loved only hers;
That touch which all sorrow fade,
Has parted on exploring ship,
Can I forget a being which alters?

Tonight I tune my soul
To love and might,
Two souls as two will no bell toll,
As one, once bound, will guide the night.

@ bea
Happy Valentines day! I looked at the start I did in my article in Majestic and thought it would do to finish it. I offered it to my wife.

How can I count the ways I love you
Heart and soul with each golden breath
With you time has no real meaning
I shall love you more even unto death

I could easily do a short list of one to ten
But then what in the ninety would I miss?
What small grace or mercy avoids my pen
When the ten listed are all on your kiss

Its better that I love you for everything
And not waste my times in futile counts
Just thank God the for gift of Cupids sting
And fret and worry not on loves amount

For love's sake and the day,bless you all!

The Thread: Ken's Valentine.
Ken, that's perfect...bet your wife loved it!
So happy you joined the thread.

Since we haven't had one for a long time, most new people here aren't familiar with them. If you look in the archives, you will see how much fun we use to have and how it helps hone your rhyming skills...especially when we have the famous parties. Shannon was a master at those. I was planning to revive it in the spring/summer, so get your dancing shoes ready!

The Thread
Here's mine. I know I'm a little late to this but I had to throw this one in there. It's wonderfully sappy and I hope you all get a kick out of it. This was waaaay back in my teenage years so don't laugh to hard. ;)

Did you ever love someone
And know they didnt care
Have you ever looked into their eyes
And said a little prayer

Have you ever watched them walk away
Not wanting them to go
And whispered, "God I love them,"
"But please don't let them know."

You'll cry all night in misery
You'll almost go insane
Because nothing in this whole wide world
Could cause you so much pain

Don't every fall in love my friend
You'll only hurt before its through
Believe me I should should know because
I fell in love with you.

Love it Dave!
Oh David...I LOVE this!!!! Takes me back to my own teen-age years when you thought you were going to die because the boy you had a crush on didn't know you existed!!! (or did know and ignored you!)

It IS decliciously sappy...my kind of love poetry!! Thanks for joining the thread.
Stay tuned for the party thread in June.

Bea
