I did it! Not sure how good it is though. Posted it in Holiday Cheer

Will take you up on this one ... no Valentine in sight for this poor redhead (sigh) but I'm sure I can come up with something appropriately sappy -- LOL

 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Ok so I tried to write a poem with that title but, atlas I fail.  But I did write one to go with that holiday.  I have yet to have a good Valentine's Day so I found it quite difficult to write about the subject.  Anyway I hope I did the day justice with my poem...

OK I cheated a little on the title.  
Hope you'll have as much fun reading it as I had writing it. : )

Okie dokey ... done.
Gave me a chance to play with
something I might not have visioned.
Thanks.
