My Katherine My Spencer

A conversation between Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy My Katherine My Spencer Oh, my Spencer, you're much shorter than I I know, my Katherine, but for you I’d die Would you really, how that does please Oh my Katherine, you are such a tease You are the queen of the cutting remark Yes my Spencer, you’ll jump when I bark Oh my Katherine, please purr like a cat Spencer, you know, I don’t do things like that Your such a tough guy with heart so soft And you're so engaging yet stay so aloft My Katherine, what’s with, this haughtiness To keep you at bay, with your naughtiness My Spencer, it’s just, the way I am made My Katherine, no way, will you persuade This soft heart of mine, to leave you alone Spencer, you know, that I’m made of stone You’re up on the screen, all elegant, cold But Katherine to me you’re a sight to behold So true, my Spencer, but I’ve seen enough In your best suit, you still look a scruff My Katherine I wonder in our film career Which one do think, our fans most endear My Spencer, of that, there’s one thing I’m sure You can count yourself lucky I think it’s a draw We’ve been so successful, both you and I Yes, my Spencer, could want for no more Except I was more so, which you can’t deny They gave you two Oscars but I received four Oh, my Katherine, I love you so Maybe Spencer, but no-one must know We’ll leave this Earth, one day it seems And make reality our hopes and dreams

Their illicit love was legend and ponderable. She was so elegant and he was a bit rumpled. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

I love the way you set up your poem as a conversation. Very clever and fun to read. I particularly loved how you rhymed "haughtiness" with "naughtiness." Congrats on your win in my contest :)

Also, you may want to check some of your "yours" which should be you're. Some judges are sticklers, and I can't remember who is hosting this contest.

aha, halfway through I understood who they were. GREAT one to do for famous couples!

Would you think me a complete ignoramus if I didn't know who these people are? I mean...I must know...but...I'm pulling up blanks. Thanks for the introduction. Your poem is fine! Agony Aunt says thumbs up! :) Thanks for your visit to my poem on Intensity. Take care, Richard.
