Amorousness---Our Life Battery Recharger: A Poem
Great Poet Petrarca kept Laura in his dream
and every laureate who ever made his name big
had a love that gave him wings more than it may seem
so let us decide now to tear down that shameful leaf of fig.
We don't need Freud to teach us here
amorousness drive is so known to us all
but let us make something perfectly clear
with that fire gone life slows down to a crawl.
As body thinks we are up for procreating
it gives us all that stamina, vitality and zeal
seeing our willingness or lack of it for mating
as sign to put us to a pasture or make us heal.
Amorously active or just in a mood for love
recharges our batteries beyond our admitting
so every time we hear that longing call of a dove
let it remind us all not to ever think about our quitting.
We are only as old as young we feel
steadily propelled by that sweet emotion
so why allow amorousness to lose its appeal
let us forever use that as our magic youth potion.
