The Parcel

The postman called today
with something wrapped in blue
I wondered whether it
could have been sent by you.
I couldn’t wait to see
what was inside the box
but when I opened it
there was a pair of socks
with a notelet that read
“Wear these and think of me
and then decide whether
you want to marry me.”
I wondered what on earth
your reasoning could be.
Why would a pair of socks
make me want to marry?
But when I put them on
they were warm and cosy
and as my feet warmed up
my cheeks soon got rosy.
I understood you meant
that you would make me feel
all warm and cozy too,
you’re not just sex appeal!
