The Handkerchiefs

The Handkerchiefs

Dear June,
                   you see, I know your name,
your handkerchief was spelt the same,
the one I kept, when in the park,
you dropped it on a summer walk.

  You haven't dropped one since, all year!
  The truth most likely is, I fear
  You quite forgot to buy some more
  To drop for me upon the floor

So please accept this gift from me
Some silken handkerchiefs times three
And should you now be quite sure who
To drop them for - I'm wearing blue
