for my valentine/lyrical artistry

hacker the drone

Arthur Hacker, the Drone, 1899

For my valentine, I shall not be neither shy nor retiring.

In opaque flimsy, whimsy silk and bustier I shall be attiring.

I hope my valentine shall find my choice of clothes inspiring.

And make him think of the same sorta night as I’m desiring.


I never tire of writing bad rhyming poetry.

My lasting contribution to lyrical artistry.

Weaving rhymes into a rich, worded tapestry.

Some say what I do to language is banditry.

And, the world better off if I stuck to dentistry.

    Your rhyming it doth raise a smile
    I want to tarry here a while
    And read upon your winsome delights
    Pray tell, fair lady, are you clad in tights,
    Or, as young maidens, who are young and brave
    Sport stockings to delight the knaves?

    … No need to answer my doggerel question! You inspired me to respond in rhyme! Loved it!

      Ah, but I must answer bold and true/Tis the honorable thing to do
      When the knaves are there, I wear nothing, my legs are bare.

      Thank you! Some times I get the rhyming flu and there’s nothing I can do. ;]

    I liked your rhyming just fine! In fact, it is a whimsical poem for Valentine’s Day! :)

      Thank you. I’m never sure when I stray from free/blank verse.


I love dialogue. Do you?
