bound partner inspecting some wild flowers.

A perfect love poem according to Kenia's explanation
at Real Toads is found to conform to the formula:
x (p + b + c + o) which represents
mystery (pattern (rhyming) + brevity + comparison + obstacles)

Substantive in love's courage
Surreptitiously given to loving
Sought now for a marriage
Seemingly not really wanting

Such is love in a sanctuary
Straddled by conservative parents
Set in contrast to modern society
Streaks where freedom is very apparent

So objections bandied about
Salient to accede to the parents
Scandalous to think to elope
Sobering that love will be earned

Note: Hank tries to follow the formula keeping
it rhyming throughout in all its brevity.

For Kenia's hosting at Real Toads  - perfect love poem
