Simple Is Best
by Patricia McGoldrick
On a cold winter morning
He makes a quick trip to the market
Returning with a brown paper bag
Filled with red fruit and veggies
And shiny red-wrapped chocolates
Buttery croissants with
A creamy slab of local white cheese
Topped with a crimson ribbon.
Note: It seems to me that the heart really does know. Originally, I wrote this for a love theme poetry prompt at Poetic Asides blog site. Later, I shared under my name on February 16th, 2010 at 7:25 am on Poetry Ireland Guest Blog.
