(Love's) Better Poetry

PAD Challenge day 6: For today’s prompt, take the phrase "Better (blank)," 
replace the blank with a new word or phrase, 
make the new phrase the title of your poem, 
and then, write your poem.

This take on today's poem-prompt 
was inspired by yesterday's photo-session;
the aim being to get a few good ones
(aka everyone looking forward with eyes open!!) 
for a page in a family calendar for my parents for Christmas

You are the laugh-lines that I earn
And collect thankfully
As by the grace of God I learn
Love's Better Poetry

You overflow my cup of joy
Filling love's crooks and curves
With happiness, dear girl and boy
More than one heart deserves 

You are my gentlest lullaby
My tenderest of care
And each, the apple of my eye
And each, my humblest prayer

You are heaven-to-earth's caress 
You are my home-sweet-home
You are more holy thankfulness
Than pen can ever poem
