Boot+Kitty=Poetry in motion
Apache Cat - Nope - poems can be about anything. I have found, however, that including words like 'heart' and 'love' gets a lot more attention from our distaff friends. Lemme give you an example, and then you can use it to impress all the ladies
I swilled the brew I love til my heart burst,
My gawd, I've got a lusty thirst!
These Honey Browns are oh so sweet
Why can't I get enough to eat?
See? Just by using those "key" words, all the ladies will swoon. Now, go out there and write like you've never written before!!! heh, Long John, you crafty sea dog. That advice will get Cat into all kinds of trouble, and you will thereby eliminate one more competitor for these ladies' hearts.
'Deer - I ought to know better than set myself up for Balladeer - I ought to know better, but I just can't keep ahead of you, 'Deer. Naturally, a ballad dedicated to me will be one the ladies will love. NOT - lol - How are you, Miguelito? It's good being back for awhile. I've missed the banter.
rwood - You know all the rights promises - please be gentle with me!!! woo hoo
Corinne - sweet Corinne - you've seen through me and uncovered the warmth I have for you. I tried to fight it, but it was hopeless. How are you, Darlin'?
Tracey - rofl@eyes. You know me too well. Have you been talking to Lorelei? Feminine attributes destroy my self control. As for the email address, please cc me when you get your thoughts composed. OK? *wiggling eyebrows*
Coco - Thank you for those words of encouragement. I hope the other poets will forgive you in time - lol. hugs
Sue - yanno, when you get your fingers confused, and the wrong one keeps tapping, you can really make an old guy like me feel good about the number of responses he gets - lol. I would love to read about Aussie types of things.
