Amorousness for a Higher V.Q. (Vitality Quotient): A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Great poet Petrarca had Laura in his dream

and every laureate ever making name big

got amorous wings more than it seems

so let's tear down that shy leaf of fig.

No need for Freud or Reich to get educated here

for amorous passion is well known to us all

but let's make something perfectly clear

without it whole life comes to a crawl.

As long as body thinks we want to procreate

it gives us great stamina, vitality, and zeal

unfortunately it's this willingness to mate

putting us to pasture or thrive and heal.

Amorously active or just in a mood for love

recharges our batteries beyond admitting

and every time we hear a call of a dove

it's to remind us not to plan quitting.

It's said, we are only as young we feel

whole our life propelled by that emotion

with amorousness not losing that appeal

we'll forever use it as youthfulness potion.
