The Washington Post requested rhymes with a romantic first line but an un-romantic second line. Here are some of the entries.
Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss
I thought that I could love no other
Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.
Of loving beauty you float with grace,
Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
I want to feel your sweet embrace
I love your smile, your face, and your eyes.
My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
I see your face when I am dreaming.
My love, you take my breath away.
My feelings for you, no words can tell,
What inspired this amorous rhyme?
