Poetry by Jeff Green

Would you make love on winter nights
A warm embrace against the cold
An open box of sweet delights
To have and hold?

And in the spring make love to me
As all around life does the same
With tender kisses set me free
To play the game?

On Summer days would we embrace
Long evenings wrapped as close as one?
In some unknown enchanted place
Would we find fun?

Then as the leaves began to fall
Would you still want me by your side?
I know my love will never pall
Please be my bride.

So every season every year
We can enjoy the changing scene.
As long as I can hold you near
Life is serene.
