(Scroll down for the complete poem.)

I e-mailed all my friends
I wrote to others too
Sent pictures also
Looking for a beau.


Let them all know
I need a feller
To sit and swing with
To hold hands too


I used to walk in the woods
And down on the sandy shore
But it is no fun alone
Not any more.


I got a couple nibbles
But gosh, they were my second cousins.
Well they had no bad intentions.
They invited me to the reunion.


So, I sit here and type
Wondering what to do...
If you got a good idea
You be sure and let me know.


I got no long-term plans
You see. I just like to hold hands
And to swing on the porch.
Let me know now if you see a free feller.
