For My Gorgeous Waterfall

For My Gorgeous Waterfall

by jay

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Trappings are gorgeous,
And so are you.

Orchids are white,
Ghost ones are rare,
A home is straight,
And so is your hair.

Magnolia grows,
With buds like eggs,
Walls are thick,
And so are your legs.

Sunflowers reach,
Up to the skies,
My array is dazzling,
And so are your eyes.

Foxgloves in hedges,
Surround the farms,
Columns are slender,
And so are your arms.

Daisies are pretty,
Daffies have style,
An effect is dazzling,
And so is your smile.

A waterfall is beautiful,
Just like you.


Auto Praise for For My Gorgeous Waterfall

“I’m sure I’ve read something a bit like this before. I just can’t work out where…”
– The Daily Tale
“This is too beautiful for words. ‘Gorgeous like trappings’ – that’s literary tin. I hope the person this poem is about feels as special as I would. I’m welling up here!”
– Hit the Spoof
“How can arms be like columns? What utter twaddle! As for shortening ‘daffodils’ to ‘daffies’ – who would do such a thing?”
– Enid Kibbler

“An interesting twist on th old ‘Roses are red’ theme. The use of ‘myopic hazel’, ‘straight’ and ‘thick’ makes this original in ways neither Shakepeare, Burns nor Victor Hugo could master.”
– Zob Gloop
