CUPID'S DART

O, Cupid took a shining dart
and feathered it with love . . .
and wove a magc spell . . .
with all the stars above.

Then he put the moonlight
into the summer sky . . .
and stirred the breath of roses . . .
as we were passing by.

Then he bent his golden bow
from the bow-string sped the dart!
And when Love's arrow came to rest . . .
I found it in my heart!

(Dedicated to the love of my life.... my sweet husband!!!!)

  3. Cupids dart in the heart.
    Our hearts can be quite fragile ... yet, when cupids dart touches us ... we are energised.
    Beautiful Margie.
    see you soon.

  7. Cupid is always busiest in spring. Not that spring is here yet for you.

    Supposed to be 87 degrees today, I think summer cut in line.
