For: “NATIONAL BOOK LOVERS’ DAY,” celebrating reading and our favorite books:

“BOOK LOVERS LOVE: ‘FIFTY SHADES OF GREY!’ ” a poem for Freya’s Day, a.k.a.: “The Anatomy of Training!” August 9, 2019 [Friday]

My Beloved TRAINS ME – with style and grace!

With the back of her hand! all over the place!

Of course, She is-NEVER mean, callous – or overbearing,

And understands me PERFECTLY! That’s why I’m sharing,

Her training philosophy (ies) with YOU,

“TO GET YOUR ATTENTION” is what She likes to do,

For – She and her household – must be TRULY SURE,

That I CAN deal with the rigors of this World and endure,

“The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune!”*

The WORLD twists-and-turns-us – with seemingly “malicious torsion!”

So, Friends, when you lady does steam and fume,

And mopes and grumbles, uttering: “Doom! Doom!”

It’s just her loving-way of “testing your metal,”

For a-little-later soon, she’ll call-you “Petal,”

And kiss and cuddle-you – and cry for joy,

‘Cause she KNOWS she’s got a tough, devoted, Worldly Boy!
