“Lavender and Pretty Red Roses”

Like lavender and pretty red roses,
they’re meant for your immaculate sweethearts
and their fine, little delicate noses;

not to damage the most sensitive parts
or overwhelm the olfactory senses,
bedaub with the finesse of the fine arts

as love’s a game of great consequences;
dates decide on the mere whiff of a scent,
so smell good or lead to major offenses!

Too much strong scent is wholly unpleasant;
a little hint on the neck and the wrist
is enough to smell attractively fragrant.

So don’t gall like a face hitting a fist;
if you are smart you'll more than get the gist?
