Valentine's Lullaby

In the second month
the fourteenth day dims.
A frozen shadow grows o'erhead
casting black the Lovers' gaze.
Senseless in their headlong haze
to the icy whisper they will not hear:
The siren song of Valentine
Sung through lips, raw sores incarnadine -
Come to me, my love,
My downey pillow,
My tomb...

    Hi Chicklette and Uncle Jed!

    I just listened to Valentine's Lullaby and began to cry. Ha ha!

    You should do this with all the other Poems.

    P.S. How about an Easter Poem?

    Love you,
    Cherry
