A romantic sonnet for my beautiful pharmacist who smiles like Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa."
Beloved Apothecary, you are most
    lovely to me in ways you cannot guess;
your subtle smile, which haunts me like a ghost,
    exalts and elevates me nonetheless.
More beautiful than the rest, you beguile
    the best in me, a tame and mild, old soul
your soft demeanor has blessed all this while; 
    and mended to health and to being whole.
Because of you, I have gained newfound wealth,
    a treasure and fortune from meeting you
one fateful night this last spring, on the twelfth
    of May, which I remember to this day, too.
Like medicine, so are your lovely ways;
for knowing you, oh so richly repays!
