Poets’ Corner: Feela for Valentine’s Day

Poets’ Corner: Feela for Valentine’s Day

On Valentine’s Day, in some countries, a young woman may receive a gift of clothing from a young man. If she keeps the threads, it means she will marry him. But most men in this country hedge their bets: married or no, it’s all about flowers. In fact, given the choice of tokens, more than 75 percent on men in the U.S. over the past two years gave flowers to a significant other or mother. According to ProFlower, of those, “nine in ten primarily intended to express their love (91%), while 26% said they give flowers to avoid disappointing the person, and 16% said to avoid being in the dog house.” The following is a “bouquet”  from regular contributor, poet extraordinaire David Feela.


roses shaped like a heart

Sweet Williams Garden

I’m a gladiola

she’s a begonia

aster to forget-me-not

and marigold me,

make a baby’s breath

and be a poppy

for all me daisies.
