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!
* – from: William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” Act 3, Scene 1
