To the pretty girls, running slow

Who let us steal playground kisses

To smiling eyes that seem to know

How to encourage loving wishes


To the maidens, fair and lovely

Who easy win our needy hearts

To the Gods realmed above me

Who perfected the gendered art


To your parents who raised you well

Who gave you your inner strength

To those who find their love in life

Regardless of the gifted length


To every painted flirtatious eye

Who can make a man fall

To all the women in our world

Who bring beauty to it all


I offer only a humble thanks

That you are exactly who you are

For an imagined world without you

Is a night sky without the stars

  4. “A boy chases a girl until she catches him” is a lyric line in an old song no longer remembered. What lovely words you use in ode to the female gender on this earth. Thank you for them!

    Gender differences are such a blessing. Some of my best friends are women, and I always appreciate their perspectives.

    Wow I have to agree with everything said in the comments. KK nailed it. You accuse me of being such a romantic and guilty as charged dear Brad but what are you if not the same? What a lovely piece written to all women and what a beautiful gift. Gorgeous writing Brad. Sending firewood, chocolate homemade cake and candles. Now I am hoping a damsel in distress will come knocking soaked at your door this evening. Big hugs from all the ladies in our world. 🤗🤗❤️🦋love Jonikins

      I can’t get the pizza delivery guy to find my place, so I am pretty sure a distressed damsel has very little hope of finding me. But I do appreciate the thought, Jonikins!

      • jonicaggiano says:

        Oh no pizza, that stinks although homemade pizza is so much better for you. Thanks for this laugh today that was pretty funny Brad. Maybe damsel’s in distress are hard to find these days anyway. I will keep working on it Brad. Sending my love ❤️🤗🦋 Jonikins
