By Jeanette Cheezum

For Valentine’s Day he made me his wife
the next year we gave new life.
He gave me jewelry for each of his little
girls. Little did he know he was my

Sun up, sun down, I always knew where

Jeanette Cheezum’s poetry (He Said You Looked Good in Red, Prince of Peace) has appeared at vox poetica in 2009.
