A Valentine (To my phantom prince)

Melita Catalina Warren 1949 (Kansas)

Romance never arrives too late -
Shall we admit you are ‘truly great’?

For Eros ensues, true romance awaits.

Wondrous poetic works we contemplate.
Soon we create our happy fate.

A catchy melody our words punctuate -
You become the desert on my plate.

Instinct, an admirable trait,
Make us so like amazing primates.

Why not kiss by the Garden Gate,
Red Hot Amour to cultivate?
