My Katherine My Spencer

  A conversation between Katherine Hepburn
              and Spencer Tracy     

My Katherine  My Spencer

Oh, my Spencer, you're much shorter than I
I know, my Katherine, but for you I’d die
Would you really, how that does please
Oh my Katherine, you are such a tease

You are the queen of the cutting remark
Yes my Spencer, you’ll  jump when I bark
Oh my Katherine, please  purr like a cat
Spencer, you know, I don’t do things like that

Your such a tough guy with heart so soft
And you're so engaging yet stay so aloft
My Katherine, what’s with, this haughtiness
To keep you at bay, with your naughtiness

My Spencer, it’s just, the way I am made
My Katherine, no way, will you persuade
This soft heart of mine, to leave you alone 
Spencer, you know, that I’m made of stone

You’re up on the screen, all elegant, cold
But Katherine to me you’re a sight to behold
So true, my Spencer, but I’ve seen enough
In your best suit, you still look a scruff

My Katherine I wonder in our film career
Which one do think, our fans most endear
My Spencer, of that, there’s one thing I’m sure
You can count yourself lucky I think it’s a draw

We’ve been so successful, both you and I
Yes, my Spencer, could want for no more
Except I was more so, which you can’t deny
They gave you two Oscars but I received four 

Oh, my Katherine, I love you so
Maybe Spencer, but no-one must know
We’ll leave this Earth, one day it seems
And make reality our hopes and dreams

    Their illicit love was legend and ponderable. She was so elegant and he was a bit rumpled. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

    I love the way you set up your poem as a conversation. Very clever and fun to read. I particularly loved how you rhymed "haughtiness" with "naughtiness." Congrats on your win in my contest :)

    Also, you may want to check some of your "yours" which should be you're. Some judges are sticklers, and I can't remember who is hosting this contest.
