Yes, I have a longish "yay-Boston-and-library-school" post I need to write, but [ profile] petitmayfaircat had this on her journal and it was too hilarious not to do.

The Love Poetry Generator—it's Mad Libs does poetry!

My Love

Your skin glows like the pomegranate, blossoms lovely as the rose in the purest hope of spring.
My heart follows your cello voice and leaps like a platypus at the whisper of your name.
The evening floats in on a great swan wing.
I am comforted by your cravat that I carry into the twilight of plantbeams and hold next to my hair.
I am filled with hope that I may dry your tears of tea.
As my eyes falls from my hat, it reminds me of your book.
In the quiet, I listen for the last song of the day.
My heated toe leaps to my mitten. I wait in the moonlight for your secret chair so that we may dance as one, toe to toe, in search of the magnificent periwinkle and mystical shoes of love.

The best part is that some of it actually works, some is just bad, and the whole thing is far, far too amusing. (And what's with the last line being much longer than the rest of the stanza and throwing off the visual structure?)

And I really want to see a leaping platypus now. Or the mystical shoes of love. ^_^

(It definitely took me far too many attempts to fix my HTML FAIL on this—for the link! Clearly I've been away from LJ for too long. Or library school is doing Oododd things to my brain.)

*giggle* That's a good one! Yes, I wondered about the last line as well. When I first entered it at my LJ, I thought it was some sort of spacing goof of LJ's.

The mental image of a leaping platypus...Farout! ^_^
