~*~ Love Is ~*~

Love is your eyes
So earnest and true
Love is your voice
West "Virginnie" in hue.

Love is your arms
Stretched out to enfold
Love is your hands
Your poems to hold.

Love is your journey
To visit our class
Love is your joking
Your sparkle and sass.

Love is your goodies
All sugar and pink
Love is your words
Making us all think.

Love is your promise
To surely return
Love is our thank you
For helping us learn.

Poem Mrs. Whipp's 8th grade students
for Mrs. Yolanda Cohen
