Cheep Sweet Talk

"I've loved thee since I first saw thee as an adorable egg in thy nest! Wouldst that thee would deign to marry me and put my pining heart at rest! I hold thy delicate talon in my beak awaiting with bated breath, For thine answer to my plea to be my beloved until parted by death!" "All that I have to offer thee is a cozy nest in yon apple tree, Safe from prowling cats and mean little kids to raise a family! Please give me thy answer ere the sun sinks slowly in the west, That I may begin to build thy dream home, thy cozy little nest!" Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired © All Rights Reserved Honorable Mention in Francine Roberts' "Enough" Contest - May 2011

VERY cute, Bob!! I've heard of love beginning when eyes first make contact, but enjoyed the twist of love ensuing when just the "egg" is seen. You have a great entry here and you know I'm always pulling for you to succeed in Soup contests. Thanks for your kind words. Sending you a Soup mail I hope you'll read asap. Love, Carolyn
