Chalk & Cheese

If chalk was cheese, or beans were peas
And no sometimes meant maybe
If black was white, and day was night
Then would you be my baby

If truth was lie, or low meant high
And a sparrow was a starling
If young meant old, and hot was cold
Then would you be my darling

If love was hate, or chance was fate
And stealing meant to borrow
If wine was milk, and tweed was silk
Would you love me still tomorrow

If big was small, or stand meant fall
And short meant being longer
If old was new, and I were you
Would you love me any stronger

If girl was boy, or pain was joy
And August was November
If right was wrong, and ding meant dong
My face would you remember

If snow was red, or X was Z
And grass was not for growing
If push was pull, and cow meant bull
Would your love for me keep growing

If stop meant go, or friend meant foe
And thick meant being clever
If wind was rain, and France was Spain
Would you love me forever

  Wow! I loved the flow of this and the feeling of "up beat" as I read it! This reminds me of something that I would expect from Nikki Giovanni. I'll be looking forward to more of your writings! Great work! :)

  Happy day Frank!

This was like a song being sung by Sinatra. Your range of talent is so natural as Jacob mentioned.

As always, well done and very beautiful!

Love, Peace, Joy, Abundance, Beauty & Prosperous Healthy Smiles to Share ;-) ;-) ;-)

  you sure have a way with words, Frank.

this is pretty much my favorite poem i have read here in a long while.

just perfect...i like the way you rhyme so naturally...and i am not a lover of rhyming poetry..

and the "ifs" are so true..if only...

"if wind was rain, and France was Spain"

and the rain in Spain really did fall mainly on the plain...would you be My Fair Lady....

just a really good poem
