for if luve is good enough for Uncle Bobby’s red, red rose,
it’s good enough for me.

How do you spell love, noble fir of the woods?

I spell it with an ‘i,’ you see,
for when I live,
scent, shade, and boughs I give,
a Magi of a tree.

How do you spell love, breeze of Spanish plains?

Por mí, I spell it with an ‘e.’
For leve soy,
a-waft with fragrance, cry, and joy
from vast Iberian sea

How do you spell love, dame proprietress?

I spell it with an ‘a,’ you see.
A-wash, a-scrub, a-lave
whilst gentleman misbehave,
my care persists, from tea to tea.

How do you spell love, faithful scribe aside the sleuth?

I spell it with an ‘o’
'cause the schoolmarm’s slate once told me so.

How do you spell love, Mister Sherlock Holmes?

My reply may trouble you.
I don’t, but when I do, here’s a clue:
it commences with a ‘w.’
