A VALENTINE FOR-MY ENGINE MAN


| February/March 1994



13188 SR 68 South Kenton, Ohio 43326

I think I fell in love with you,
The first time that you talked,
 About the gasoline engines,
You hold closest to your heart.

The Garland, Ohio and Buckeye,
 Were just a few you named,
 Each bringing back special memories,
 Of Engine Shows and dreams.

I thought as you were talking,
 About the Fairbanks and Tom Thumb,
 How much each engine meant to you,
 You named them one by one.

You talked about the flywheels,
The governor, mag, piston & rings,
 I wondered if 1 would ever know,
Exactly what were these things.

I wondered in the weeks that passed,
As we talked of many things,
If you would ever find in your heart,
A little place for me.
