Sweet Valentines series

My first sweetheart soul was  extremely sweet
The sweet fact, she was sweet enough to eat
   An agape valentine          (a·ga·pe [aa g? pay] 3 syllables)
   My beautiful Clementine
My fault, marriage not given time to seat!

My next sweetheart from the very first start
Almost evident that we would soon part   
   Creature from black lagoon 
   Must get rid of her soon
This sweet’s nagging, truly her state of art!

Most valentines are sweet enough to eat
Giving a marriage time enough to seat
   You wish you had of eaten
   It would save from repeat-en 
Romance is treat, alas she warms you feet!

For contest: Valentine Day Limerick
For and in honor of Francine Roberts

Marriage does need some time "to seat," John. Agape love grows more intense over a period of time, but infatuation fades soon when you're tied to a "creature from black lagoon." Very witty limerick series that also has a meaningful message. Wishing you success in this contest, John. I'll be posting my entry now too. Francine gave us some great inspiration! Love, Carolyn
