Poems of the Week

A Valentine’s Gift

by Bruce McGuffin

It’s Valentine’s Day, should I buy you more flowers?
Red roses can cost quite a lot.
A poetry book? Stolen kisses in bowers?
Or something that grows in a pot?

If you weren’t on a diet then candy would do.
Yes, candy’s the best, it would be
The perfect expression of my love for you,
Because then you would share it with me.
