She Is My Happy Hobby

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






You are my philharmonic,
an opus symphony.
You are my country music, a cowboy melody.

You are my luring Venus,
a symbol of romance.
You are my corps de ballet, a company of dance.

You are my Olympiad,
a torch holding the flames.
You are my sporting event, an ultimate in games.

You are my merry-go-round,
a ride on painted horse.
You are my roller coaster, an undulating force.

You are my restitution,
a healthy change of pace.
You are my intermission, a novel breathing space.

You are my happy hobby,
a concoction for thirst.
You are my grand diversion, a recreation burst.
