Reminiscing ~~ A Valentine Poem for Mrs. J


The knees and hips
a Valentine ditty for my sweetheart
 
The knees and hips do slow us down  
But it's so very wonderful 
Reminiscing on times gone by

Times we once had but will repeat 
no more. The intimate moments
I remember the most, but not all
 
Followed by the “firsts”, some of them
Remember the first meal you cooked
Just for me, I was so happy
 
That day was roasted Cornish hen
Baked potato with all trimmings
Followed by Vichyssoise, my first
 
There and then ready to marry,  
You made me wait a whole six months
I love you still, more every day

[On February 24th
will be 45 years married]

I'm linked withat the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, The Tuesday Platform ~~ http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2018/02/the-tuesday-platform_13.html:

There Sanaa had a bunchy of Valentines Day Poems to listen to and also discussed the origin of Valentine's Day.  In part, ""In Chaucer's "The Parliament of Fowls," the royal engagement, the mating season of birds, and St. Valentine's Day are related:
"For this was on St. Valentine's Day, when every fowl cometh there to choose his mate.""

How nice to reminisce over old times. It rekindles love and enhances deeper the lovely feelings. Makes one feel young again, Dr Jim!
