My precious Romeo, you inspire this write.
How I love the way you play free and young,
Invading my dreams you brighten my night,
Always imagining your wet, red, tongue.
Let me compare you to a ripe cherry?
You are more cordial, sublime and sweet,
Ice bites the leashed walks of February,
And winter leaves snow tracked in by four feet.
How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love your innocent eyes, teeth and nose.
Gazing into your brown eyes fills my days,
I reach for my phone as you sit and pose.
Now I must command to your loyal heart,
Remember my true words whilst we’re apart.
Written for Ingrid’s Sonnet Sunday

Every dog must have his (Valentine’s) day, and the cutie Romeo no less than that AND a sonnet by his besotted mistress. 😀❤️
Yes! He’s getting poems and treats today. Too cold for a walk though! Happy Valentine’s Day!! 💕
Soooo sweet! Your dog has the perfect name for a Valentine’s poem 😍
Thanks! It’s just kind of a funny take on the Shakespearean Sonnet, but he does own my heart! 💖
aaaaaah! Too cute! stop, stop! I can’t take it any more!
I know. My poem may not do the pic justice, but it’s the thought, right!? 😆
Awwww! So sweet! And I’m laughing that you cropped your husband out of the photo.🤣
I totally understand. I was taking a rest earlier with Ricky the Cat curled up against me, and then I didn’t want to get up because I didn’t want to disturb him.😀
Thanks, Merril! This poem flowed out pretty effortlessly, haha! Meter might not be there all the time, but the luv is! 💖
Awwwww, this is adorable. My heart can’t take it!
Thanks, Lucy! I had fun with this one! 💕
