MY VALENTINE for contest

                    MY VALENTINE

                  In a stilted shanty
                  On a Gulf spring night--
                  There a ring lay shining
                  On a pillow white.
                  Jazz was in the moonlight,
                  Jasmine in the air,
                  Frozen was this moment-- 
                  Love beyond compare.
                  Empty are my arms now,
                  Years away are you.
                  How did lonely happen--
                  when one diverged in two?
