“Love”

by Riley Welcker

 

 

With dash and dance down round the dills,

half past the puddin’ please,

 

fast circling you, fast circling me,

it’s love; we finally meet;

 

and with a tip-tap-slip-a-tisk,

my insides give a leap.

 

This is how we were meant to be:

the world I leave the wild

 

white lilacs of your china plate—

a new life love has nipped for me—

 

to totter on your silver tines,

a sweet green garden pea.

 

I rise to your full lovely lips

and quiver wistfully

 

on rosy rills and courtly dips,

oh! Heavenly delay;

 

for you, my love, I sacrifice

my mush to mute your May.
