Look, there’s Alyster out in the snow,
planting little red hearts all in a row.
Is it a garden of love? Something to grow?
I just can’t imagine, I really must know.
“Why, today’s the best time and I need a lover”
said Alyster the Gnome as he planted another.
“Never thought about love, but I knew from the start,
Eve was just sitting my cat, but now stolen my heart.”
Awwwww, what a nice story, I thought with a sigh.
Who knew dear Alyster was a romantic guy?
It must be true love to plant these with care.
Today’s the big day and there’s love in the air.
Alyster whisper, “oh, just wait until spring,
when the tulips pop up and birds start to sing.”
“Keep eyes on the sky, then you’ll know why,
each heart will bloom into a butterfly.”
I’m sure I saw Eve peek out from a window above.
She smiled at his little garden, planted with love.
As night fell, Alyster thought about spring.
“Will she love me too, should I shop for a ring?”
