The Art of Woo

The Art of Woo

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

The Art of Woo

photography by / Stefan Beutler

 

 

I was never a pearl kind of girl.

Always wore jeans

with holes in the knees.

                                      I’m not beyond giving flowers to.                                      

Give me a man who still can woo.

Simply stated, lovingly crested, woozily stated.
Men are different. They surely go about it in different ways.

Hehehe! For sure! Two opposites attract and sometimes stay intact. You are welcome KS
She's beautiful, and therefore to be wooed; She is a woman, therefore to be won.
Shakespeare.
Woo her no matter what she wears.Give her what she deserves and that is flowers and wooing. Woo her no matter if there are holes in everything except your regard.

Thank you, Kelly. It's refreshing to see someone who understands that women don't need to go all out with makeup and fashion to impress others. Of course, some women enjoy dressing up and that's perfectly okay too. However, I believe that both women and men should feel comfortable with themselves, rather than feeling the need to impress others with their attire or fashion sense. After all, it's important to be true to who you are. And when it comes to dressing up, well, let's save that for the bedroom fashion shows! (Okay, I can't believe I just said that!)

I find I still get flowers offered to me and attempts to woo, but always from the type of man that doesn't interest me. Chivalry is still alive, we just have to accept it from the right shining Knight. I am not a pearl girl, either. I like the simplicity in the message conveyed in very straight terms. Will a man listen, however?

It breaks my heart to say but I do believe you're right. Thank you, Tony!
This is a delightful, fun write and speaks for so many of us. I love your expression “I was never a “pearl kind of girl.” It reminds me of the ‘blue jeans baby’ in the Elton John song. I bet you make ‘holes in the jeans’ jeans look great. I hope you are still getting flowers too!
