Love is Seeing your face in a fresh morning light A bowl and two spoons with Angel Delight Knowing there’s days when we kiss and don’t fight Love is Love is Carving our names in the heart of the oak You, adjusting my tie, so I don’t choke Sprinting like Usain through bonfire smoke Love is Love is Holding hands under dim lit gazebos With our last fiver, dining Al Fresco At a school dance, the Pogo not Disco Love is Love is Snoring together in front of the telly Tickling my toes, whilst reciting from Shelley On the A40, giving it welly Love is Love is Albums and photos, we’ve still yet to see Pebbles at Brighton, tide up to our knees Fish and chip headlines, for you and for me Love is This poem is part of my debut poetry collection, All Mine.

What a beautiful, fun and bright poem, Davy! Love is!
Thank you, Wynne. Glad you enjoyed the poetry.
I really like ‘fish and chip headlines, for you and for me’. Nice work.
Thanks, Paul, for the kind and supportive words. Glad you enjoyed the poem.
LOVE it! Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours. ~ Alicia
And to you and yours too, Alicia. Happy you enjoyed the poetry.
Love it Davy … oh the days of fish n chips in headlines 😁
Thank you, Brenda. I used to love that moment when your fingers broke through the newspaper and that smell of vinegar filled the air.
This poem is adorable! ✍️ 🏼☺️
That is most appreciated, Gilda. Happy you enjoyed the poetry.
What a lovely and witty poem, Davy. You’ve captured love at its brightest and most vulnerable points. Made me smile and sigh – love is so much more than we give it credit for. Beautifully penned! 🙂
Thank you, Terveen, I am glad you enjoyed the poem. It’s the everyday things that make love special. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Oh, WOW, Davy! I adore this poem; it’s just gorgeous and totally relatable. I love the line about the Angel Delight. That brought back happy memories of the time when I used to make this for my children. Butterscotch flavour, topped with banana or tangerine pieces, was their favourite. Yum. Also, that wow was for the excellent biography for your book, which sounds very inviting. I had no idea you had so much experience in so many careers, including the police force in London. That takes a lot of guts and hard work. My next-door neighbour’s son is in the police force, not the Metropolitan Police, but up in Hertfordshire. I can see you’ve had a wealth of subjects, experiences and ideas to write about. Many congratulations on your new book, too. That’s quite some achievement 👏. Well done. I’m very impressed 😊.
Thank you for your kind and supportive words, Ellie, they are deeply appreciated. My mouth is watering at the thought of Butterscotch Angel Delight. I had forgotten it came in that flavour. The addition of banana takes the dish to another level. Cold custard and banana is still my favourite desert though 😁.
Such a romantic poem! Yes, love is “snoring together”!
That seems to be the height of love when you get to a certain age, Priscilla 😂. My wife and I seem to practice the art most nights in front of the television. Glad you enjoyed the poem.
So beautiful Dave – one of my favourites and very appropriate. Angel Delight though? One spoon is enough 🤢 😂😂
Thank you. Mrs D. Although I much prefer a bowl of your cold custard with the skin 😍
What a lovely and witty poem, Davy. You’ve captured love at its brightest and most vulnerable points. Made me smile and sigh..That’s quite some achievement .Well done. I’m very impressed.
Thank you, Max. That is kind of you to say and glad the poetry did that for you. I appreciate you taking time out to read and share your thoughts.
