My Sweetness (poem)

Updated on September 24, 2015

Oh tarry here awhile with me my sweet…

Whilst from my face this fly I do now brush

Perhaps was best to lay away the treat

Or does my face improve with jelly blush

-

This napkin here should make quick work of this

Amazing how the stickiness doth spread

There must have been something that was amiss

A reason for this dessert covered head

-

I’d say I see alas no longer can

Forsooth twas I who jellied my eyes closed

To become this sugar coated man

Was not the meaning that I had proposed

-

The tear you see is naught for aught was learned

A friend once brushed away has now returned

      You are as amazing as the dessert covered head! Your style lends such beauty to such lighthearted fun.
