one man can love only one woman.
apparently for ten pounds he can have three.

The double meaning
of Dave King's Valentine heart
pumped delight through mine.

Oh Dave is there no end to your wit and philosophy - here's hoping not!

Shows how greedy people are today - or may, starved of love?

Linda Sue said...

Valentine's day, such a silly contrivance. Remembering school days when everyone would get penny cards from everyone else with nasty little sweet hearts to eat. ICK! Insincere mandatory love.
Sort of like confession- one can be a jerk all year but with a couple of bob and a phrase, is forgiven another year of jerky behaviour.

Another winner! Also wanted to say the first thought I had when I looked at your Dance of Life post was the Winter Olympics! Somehow the image symbolizes the energy of Earth ~ hopefully there will be less global warming during the upcoming Winter Games!

I love this one.

The whole poem hangs on the word "gain." :)

The Weaver of Grass said...

Dave - I seriously hope you are not thinking of sending three Valentine cards - and if so I hope they are all three for the same woman - and if so I hope that woman is your wife!!

Lovely

Ronda Laveen said...

Not much, me thinks!

I like the Weaver of Grass's comment and am of the same opinion.

Dave King said...

All
Thanks everyone for a pretty comprehensive set of comments.
My thoughts, too, Raj.
Wow, Kass, I'm all of a dither!
Well, I think there might be, Gwei, but I'll spin it out as long as I can!
Starvation causes greed, I've heard Jinksy.
I read of one school where the head has banned Valentine cards because love confuses the pupils - perhaps it's actually the staff who sre confused, eh Linda Sue?
Thanks for all those comments Helen. I especially like the idea of athletic skeletons.
Exactly, Storialist.
Actually, I'm not sending any, Weaver - or expecting any.
Marinela: Welcome to the blog and thanks.
Ronda: agreed!
DUTA. Absolutely.

Oh, to have so many people to whom one could send a card.

Makes one green with envy, no?
