"than bauk" form -- Fussy Little Forms

The Proposal;
love wins out 

I think I feel
Warm heart real hot
I realized
Then surmised you
and skies'd confirm
A long-term match
My sperm, we'll hatch?*

Thank you, Marian, for introducing this form.  Read more about it here:

In case you don't, here is an intro to the "than bauk" form: 

The than bauk form is a three-line poem with four syllables each, featuring rhymes in kind of a step pattern like this:

        x x x R        x x R x
        x R x x
One could chain together several to make a longer poem, like this:
            x x x A
            x x A x
            x A x B
            x x B x
            x B x C
            x x C x
            x C x x
Translation:  "I love you very much, let us marry and you will have my babies?" 
                     (or something like that, I'm not so good with words like this)

Hah! I really like this, with that punch line at the end especially. It made me laugh and yes, very sweet. "Skies'd confirm a long-term match." :)

Love this, Jim! I need to re-work mine ~~ did NOT manage the rhyme aspect at all.
