Four Little Letters



Love is indeed a very short word Four little letters spell it out But those letters can mean a lifetime Of joy, there's absolutely no doubt Sure you've heard this many times It makes the world go round The reason we create this aura about us In spite of the ups and downs The male is supposedly the dominant one But that's when we hunted for food Now the ladies seem to be running things Using sex to control our moods Works each time though we surely know Her tactics are to encourage fidelity We fall each time for that moment sublime When we lose all sense of reality © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack: You are just too correct with this. I'd resent it, but in my heart I know it's right on. I penned another quatrain myself today but in two-word rhyme: "Gibbous Moon." Take care dear Jack

    when I saw the title I thought it would be about love. I was right. :) But your words speak true, jack. If only everyone had your talent AND reasoning, words like that wouldn't have to be repeated so often as they are. A delightful write, Love, Juli-Michelle

    the most desirable kind of love is the meeting of minds and hearts, jack... making love when these are fulfilled is one big explosion of the spirit... really cool write; take a bow!..:) huggs

    My 4 letter words for Dragon are Darn, Crap, and OOPS! They came from, motherly, Dragon LOVE, of course. The key to his control is filling his tummy, an occassional tummy rub, reading to him before bedtime, and other small attentions... all day long! He's a little exhausting, at times... Especially when digging roses out from under another poo! Sigh! You tend to lose thoughts of any thing else... With all that time, you have... you need a DRAGON!... To turn your mind else where... LOL...

    Oh dear Jack, tis never sex we use... What Drake doesn't know is the seduction of a woman begins with food. We're no dummies :-) lol

    An awesome piece to keep my Friday morning going smooth. Though, I will say this, sex isn't controlling my moods...food does. Italian food, more precisely. :) I am a simpler man who knows better to let sex control how I roll. ;-) You're making me thinking this morning, Jack. Splendid! =D
