LOVE LINES

The single and worthless glove
is exhausted
by English poetry
catchy songs
and greeting cards.
If Love be the dearest commodity
the inventors of language
should have found a word
that rhymes with pretty gifts.
Perhaps Lapphire
in place of Love.
Or rhymes with lots of stuff
like Ling
which would provide diversity
in dinner music.
But please
not too jejune
not Loon.
