Happy Valentine's Day!

I have a penfriend in Australia who I have written to since we were fifteen.  Now we email.  She sent me the following, and I would like to share it with you as it's just how I feel these days!

Australian Love Poem

Of course I love ya darlin
You're a bloody top-notch bird
And when I say you're gorgeous
I mean every single word.

So ya bum is on the big side
I don't mind a bit of flab
It means that when I'm ready
There's something there to grab.

So your belly isn't flat no more
I tell ya, I don't care
So long as when I cuddle ya
I can get my arms round there.

No Sheila who is your age
Has nice round perky breasts,
They just gave in to gravity
But I know ya did ya best.

I'm tellin' ya the truth now
I never tell ya lies
I think it's very sexy
That you've dimples on ya thighs.

I swear on me nanna's grave now
The moment that we met
I thought you was as good as
I was ever gonna get.

No matter what you look like
I'll always love ya dear,
Now shut up while the cricket's on
And fetch another beer.



Brings a lump to your throat doesn't it?!

And for the purists - remember that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration.  The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life's sweetest creation.


Happy Valentine's Day everyone, everywhere!

    1. No, you're okay, only one comment. At least you know how to work your phone. I gave up long ago and only use mine for calls now! And yes, the poem is great!

    2. Sorry, my fingers got twisted up!

      The poem is marvellous - and unfortunately, so true! Especially in the 'going south' department. Sigh....

  7. OMGoodness!!!! Perfect! For us change the cricket to Football or as Americans call it Soccer, and it fits.

    My Scotsman still thinks I'm sexy, so I'm just not going to analyze it!

    1. S now has the 'great and incapacitating cold' so is having to miss his soccer match! I am still wheezing. Hopeless.

      Thank goodness our men sag at the same rate as us! Well, unless you are married to a toy boy that is. Now there's a thought....

      (Help! Just joking!)

      Hugs, Ami

    1. The poem was a good one, but we still have our b----y colds and feel rotten, so no going out this year. Never mind.

    1. It certainly was funny Susie. A good pick up on a winter's day.

  14. That Susie is just not right!

    Anyway, a fantastic and realistic poem! Thanks for sharing. I hope you fell asleep, entangled in Starman's arms, completely exhausted ( oh yeah...and a hot bottom ) last night!

    Love Willie

    1. I feel like shouting "Bah humbug!" at the top of my voice. Been in bed all week and now S has the lurg and I'm still coughing like a maniac. So a hot bot would be a complete pipe dream. In fact I wonder whether there is an association that is the opposite of Spankers Anonymous for those times when you are suffering complete withdrawal symptoms, if you know what I mean, and with no chance of even a 'quick fix'!

      Hugs, Ami
