Milk And Honey



She is milk and honey, a delicate surprise.
He is means and money, a wealthy enterprise.
She is pure and bunny, a radiant surmise.
He is bright and sunny, an academic prize.
She is droll and funny, a comical disguise.
He is fast and runny, a chivalric emprise.
She is smart and cunning, a gal who's worldly-wise.
He is no one's dummy, a guy without demise.
