Sonnet 1

She found herself attending summer school
Her boyfriend called and said she was "a fool"
She told him frankly; and to set it straight:
"I thank you for your kisses — they can wait."
The boy mistook this for a vital sign
And he was last seen walking toward the pines
The girl, now at a loss, did not feel good
She knew that she would find him – yes she would
She emailed all her friends and spread the news
And said she had the "No-More-Boyfriend-Blues"
The boy was feeling sick and went back home
He called his girlfriend on the telephone:
"I've realized that your love never ends.
I'll stay with you, on that you can depend."
