Valentine’s Day is this weekend – and what’s more romantic than a heart-felt poem written just for the one you love? But wait! Don’t have a rhyming bone in your body? Typewriter Rodeo’s Jodi Egerton has you covered.
A TEXAS VALENTINE’S DAY POEM
I’m taking my heart, and tangling it with you,
A sweet Texas Valentine for my love so true.
You’re a West Texas sunrise full of golden reds and blues,
And a riverfront festive boat ride, just us upon this cruise.
My heart speeds like a jackrabbit every time that you come near,
And I squeal a little javelina-like when you bring me a Lone Star Beer.
Oh my darlin’ Texas Valentine, I have no doubt,
That we’ll be together through hurricanes or parched, desert drought.
