Valentines Day Sediment

Studio Apartment

Roses are red,
Violets are violet,
Fold up the bed,
Get out of the toilet.

Housework Blues

Shamrocks are green,
Cornflowers are blue,
Turn off the machine,
You sucked up my shoe.

Growing Old Together

Asters are gold,
Daisies are yellow,
Don't get too old,
I'll still be your fellow.

Faithful Partner

Carnations are pink,
Orchids are ecru,
When you turn to drink,
I can't stand by you.

William's Whimsical Words:

Writing poetry is the soul means of expressing my love.
