Well, pardon me, I must be dumb
'Cause I don't know where love comes from.
Not even sure what it's made of,
That silly little thing called love.

I thought it came around here once
But I was such a silly dunce,
Before I had the chance to say
"I love you, love"- it went away.

No, wait!! What am I thinking of?
Of course I have known real love.
A love that opened every door.
I got it from my labrador.

He always smiled with shining eyes
And, never once, did criticize.
He answered to my every whim
And knew that I was there for him.

Perhaps I could transpose these facts,
Apply them to how humans act
To reach an understanding of
Ingredients that make true love.

Could be, if you don't criticize -
Show disapproval in your eyes,
And give someone whole-hearted trust
Displaying love instead of lust....

You'll have the prime ingredients
Of making love - Now, that makes sense!
There is one other thing that's true;
To love someone, they must like you!

Only in the Bible, please
Do people love their enemies.
In real life, I do believe
To give out love, you must receive.

To receive it, you must give it out....
WHAT THE HELL AM I TALKIN' ABOUT!?!?!
This love talk brings me to my knees!
Can't we change the subject, please?

Must be a formula for true love.
Someone will surely invent it.
I hope they do it real soon...
I'm tired of going to rent it!

the human brain's chemical reactions brought about by chocolate are said to equal those of love...so there are two possible approaches then: (1) if you are a chemist, analyze chocolate; (2) if you feel unloved, buy a box of chocolates

Sir Balladeer: A fine bit of humor with a good dose of truth. However, I'm sorry to report that love is a woman named Carol and she more resembles a squirrel. At least for me.

Beautiful soulful eyes of brown
Ballad-dog, the best of breed
Running through a meadow or park
I long to hear your joyful bark!



Cute poem......hug the dog for me!

Thank you all.

Andrew, I'm not sure you want your wife to see your comment or she might kick your *squirrel food*

DeVine one:

Hear my dog bark?
Afraid you can't.
One look at you
And he'd just pant!!!

Well Sir Balladeer, once again your message is clear. Here's wishing you bundles of Love, be it with a Labador, or be it with a women pure.

No problem here, Sir Balladeer

From here to there
She's got long red hair
A squirrel's tail it could be
When I get to make it a mess
She says it looks like a nest
And she likes to climb trees
