Love Poem: A Valentine Treat

A Valentine Treat

Bundled for the weather
Was an old man on the street.
He pushed along a shopping cart,
His purchases complete.

I’ve no idea what things he bought
Except for, one supposes,
A treat meant for his Valentine – 
A dozen bright red roses.

For love and its expressions,
Sometimes difficult to gauge,
On this date make folks affectionate,
Regardless of their age.
