A Little February Romance

Photo of amaryllis by Judith at A View From the Woods


In that red dress
that spills down her body
like paint,
she is an amaryllis
in a winter room.
Heads turn;
the air is on fire.
When the music starts
she turns,
and when they dance,
she is all he needs to know of flowers.

How romantic!

Sensuous poem! Got more life than 99 99/100% of the Valentines out there!

(BTW, Frank just read it and said with a smile, I understand that one! He's from the poetry-tone-deaf people, so that's quite a coup, my dear.)
