A Pagan’s Day

Nearly upon us

A day we now celebrate

As sons and lovers

Of all kinds, ilks and sorts


Special intimacies

Caring caresses

Cards and Candies

Flowers, stuffed animals

Doodads and hearts galore.


Give thanks for the

Many brave women

And lovers we’ve known.

They, in so many ways

Are the voice

Of the future

Saviors of “mankind”.

Powerful redeemers

Of truth and justice;

Leaders with a

Consistent moral compass.







Lovers with a touch

That cures

That enables


Soothing caresses

Fiber that withstands;

Instincts for the

Benefit of all.


Be my Valentine

All you lovely Ladies

I have known

You are,

Each and every one

Devoutly to be adored.
