A Kiss Under The Mistletoe

He stood for hours 'neath the inviting mistletoe, But nary a gal took notice of his miserable woe! He smiled and made goo-goo eyes as they passed by, But they just tittered leaving him high and dry! He slyly pointed to the mistletoe with a silly grin, But this didn't impress a soul, much to his chagrin! He shifted from one foot to the other still hopin' When to his horror he discovered that his fly was open! Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired (c) 2013 All Rights Reserved

Good morning Bob, how are you on this very cold day. Right now I'm on vacation in the beautiful state of Oregon. In which is mighty cold, with Snow outside. haha I said Snow, as if you are afraid of it. I bet being from the lovely state of Colorado, makes it easier for one to adjust. About your poem: enjoying the fine kiss under the mistletoe, heheh What a silly grin..xox...LINDA

The good thing about poetry is that it can either make you laugh, cry , sigh or feel sad when it is well written. Thank you for a beautiful poem. You mad me laugh and I really need I these days.
