So rich in bright yellow spurts of Spring

10 of 12 given words:
wrong, know one strength, rich 
makes long measures length love 

It is not wrong to know one's strength
So rich in bright yellow spurts of spring
It makes long measures of wanting to extend
The season's beauty to flaunt its bidding

Length of words to hide the blushes
The young gallivanting with their innocence
The main players snapping up red roses
Love pushing its luck for the occasion

Hoping to get out of the dark
To invoke love's annual exuberance
Happy Valentine!

  1. Just have to remember not to push such luck too far

  2. I love those bright yellow spurts of spring!

  3. I suppose it's human nature to try to push against the rules and boundaries. People like seeing what they can get away with.

  4. I think we should be more like daffodils... the bloom in the bleakest of soils

  5. Hope alentine's was all you wished for Hank, thanks as always for adding your thoughts to this week's tale weaver.
