Intensity of feelings can be sweet
Like honey, in a cup of ginger tea
But ginger by itself is hard to eat
And honey can be sweet hyperbole
So drink it slowly if you want the joy
Of something warm, fulfilling, and select
And share it with your lover, but employ
The wisdom you’ve been given, to protect
The joy of she-who’s-given-you-her-heart
She likes the sweetness of the tea you make
And trusts your judgment, even if it’s tart!
She’ll always drink it, for your passion’s sake
But if your tea or feelings are intense
You might as well commit some grave offense.
