Love Poetry for Luther

Hello everybody! I hope you’re having a Happy February and staying warm in this chilly weather!

Since Valentine’s Day is approaching, I thought I would use this post to express some Valentine love for Luther. I will attempt to do so through some poorly (by which I mean expertly) written poetry, for your amusement.  Each poem is dedicated to something that I love about Luther or Decorah right now.

*Ahem*

 

Rhyme for Student Activities

Roses are Red.

Violets are Blue.

Campus is freezing

But there’s still lots to do.

  

Haiku for My “World of St. Patrick” Class

Why wear a helmet?

The ancient Romans did it,

And it looks awesome.

Oh yes. I am ten times fancier in a Roman helmet replica.

Sonnet for Ronnie’s Rolls, Sold at Ruby’s Downtown (And also Sunnyside at Luther, I think)

Oh, Ronnie’s Rolls, you are so very good.

You are truly a most beautiful sight.

I like you more than I probably should,

But I will not regret a single bite.

I really wish I had your recipe.

Whatever it is, nobody’s telling.

But could I reproduce such artistry,

Or that cinnamon-y way you’re smelling?

I seriously doubt it, Ronnie’s Roll,

You swirling, delicious delicacy.

Just one of you makes my heart feel full.

And also my stomach.  For you must see,

A Ronnie’s Roll will always pass the test;

There’s a reason why you’re Iowa’s best.

Delicious Ronnie's cinnamon roll
Delicious Ronnie's cinnamon roll

  

Free Verse for the Ellison Paper Cutter in the Union

I don’t know

If any of you have used

The Ellison Paper Cutter

In the Union, but

It’s

Fantastic.

It cuts shapes

Out of paper

In two seconds

That would take

Hours

To cut by hand.

It’s,

Like,

My best friend.

Paper hearts, cut by the magnificent Ellison Paper Cutter
Paper hearts, cut by the magnificent Ellison Paper Cutter

  

Limerick for Don Jose’s in Downtown Decorah

There once was a place to get food

And instantly brighten your mood.

With a nacho (or twenty)

And tacos a plenty,

It was Don José’s…always so good….

Rice, beans, an enchilada, and a taco = awesome.
Rice, beans, an enchilada, and a taco = awesome.

  

Acrostic for Luther

Lovely place to be, with

Unlimited new experiences

To try,

Here in the Oneota Valley, an

Excellent place to learn and

Really grow

Thus concludes my love poetry for Luther College. I hope you enjoyed it (and didn’t look too closely at my meter)!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! 

Hugs,

Jillian

It's cold out there, campers. But Koren is pretty.
