Letter 'L'


Isn't this the most romantic shot you've ever seen!
Far surpassing shots of bridal glory!
The honeymoon is over but romance has kept its sheen,
And, day by day, they're living a Love Story.
I saw them at the beach with their delightful little boy,
Who was dabbling in the water, unaware
That his parents were expressing a unique and charming joy;
The world was watching, but they didn't care.
True love does not depend upon 'the wedding' or 'the dress',
Or the photographs bedecked with silver hearts.
This photograph, to me, expresses special happiness,
It's how a romance grows, not how it starts.

More romance here:

Ah, yes! Love - we're learning about true love right now ourselves to the point of postponing our wedding. Come & read a bit about what we're going through now. *sigh*

Well said - love grows with tending and tenderness, and as wonderful as new love is, mature love is a wonderful testament to caring.

So very true - and yes, it is a wonderfully romantic photo!

Yes, I thought of the word "love" as an l-word and even listed it in my introduction. But I did not want to touch it with a ten-foot pole!

I am so happy that YOU chose this l-word, because only you could do it without making it sound trite.
Once again, I salute you and your talent for verse!! I hope you save all of these poems and publish them in a little, tiny book. I would buy it.

I wish I had the kind of love that this couple seem to have. I so agree with your poem. Yes inspite of the images that I have posted on my blog. You will understand if you visit:

(P.S. I think my grandparents had that kind of love.)
