Not the original Scarlett, I know.
Nor is this Rhett the original beau.
But they are so perfectly romantic,
We can't spoil the mood by being pedantic!
Clark Gable wasn't a patch on this
Gorgeous man who's about to kiss
A girl whose luminosity
Knocks spots off that old Vivien Leigh!
Clark Gable, they say, had very bad breath!
And Vivien's mewing bored me to death.
I know the purists will shout me down;
They may even ride me out of town.
But I have to say the couple above
Seem the epitome of LOVE!
Who they are I haven't a notion
But, my, can they express emotion!
In my next life I'll scorn a tiara!
I'd rather come back as Scarlett O'Hara!
A truly 'scarlet woman' here:

See tomorrow's blog for a little perspective.

Yes that is a romantic pic for sure.

Ralph said...

I guess that it is love. But a love of passion, including quick-to-anger and equally quick in the forgiveness. And they are so attractive together!

I am so glad I am past all that now - I regret the time spent dwelling on the possibilities of unrealistic romantic encounters with the Rhetts of this world!
