A little tongue in cheek yet my humble contribution to Pauline Millers title challenge.
Thou may whereas as once did Romeo,
Pledge thy love neath Juliet’s balcony,
Yet blade and poison fancy ye not (no)
Forsooth would be a tragic travesty,
And if as Lancelot and Guinevere,
Forbidden fruits thy passions wild delight,
Pray not thy queen exposed becomes a nun,
And thee a hermit, once a gallant knight,
Maybe as Casanova thou aspire,
Per ardua ad astra one persists,
Of Henriette’s chaste thine heart’s desire,
Mind fickleness ills more, lest one desists,
Avoiding cupids arrow down the years,
Doth spell disaster ending up in tears.
From a realistic me I wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day.
