CHEERIO AS THEY SAY

It seems like yesterday It was Valentine’s Day We met at a café My hair in disarray He guessed I was fair play Capriciously I said no way Yet saw a certain cachet So didn’t race away When the skies turned blue grey Raincheck for that sundae We both took the subway Agreed to meet Tuesday Since I don’t play croquet We saw a matinee Tried kissing me midway Thought it was his birthday One might suspect foul play But there was no replay Or attempt at foreplay Soon met every day And became fiancé Not one to go half way When came our wedding day Ordered a DuBonnet Then threw my bouquet Sped along the freeway Craving our getaway Honeymooned in Gaspé Forgot my negligee Then off to Santa Fe Met our sommelier Glasses of chardonnay Cheerio as they say Now baby on the way Due next Valentine’s Day AP: Honorable Mention 2020 Submitted on January 29, 2018 for contest A ROMANTIC VALENTINE DAY POEM sponsored by EMILE PINET
