at cards

clubs   diamonds   spades   hearts
belovèd    is this love of ours
but a game of cards    if yes
what are we betting    if no
then why keep playing   most lovely one
do not answer me – do not answer
for  in any case  life is a game of chance
yes  life is a grand lottery
well then my little dove:
perhaps our love’s a gamble but surely
it’s no house of cards
