Love Song

I post this every spring -


Love Song

A soft and gentle morning,
The kiss of spring upon the air,
Bring my love and I together
No other soul was there.

A simple wrap was all she wore
Accenting every line.
My reeling heart could scarce believe
This form divine was mine.

My mind recalled the summer days
We'd shared beneath the sun.
She, responding to my every touch
And we two moved as one.

I slipped the covering gently down.
My hand caressed her side.
Then a feeling grew within me
That would not be denied.

She had no voice to tell me,
But her need was just as real.
So I got the anti-fouling out
And began to paint her keel.
And began to paint her keel.

by the late P/R/C Alexander Roulstone, N

Re: Love Song

Hi Redhead

Lovely poem but we have a while to wait until spring. We are enjoying beautiful autumnal/fall weather here in SE Aus.

Cheers Sue

Re: Love Song

I was getting excited until I realized this involved manual labor!
