Cheap Date Nite: Walk Amongst Your Town

Do you have to be rich to go to places of beauty? Nope. Every city has a place, usually free, that highlights the city.

Walk with your wife or girlfriend, bring a book of poetry, an umbrella, something sweet to eat. You can even bring a thermos full of hot chocolate, or cool lemonade. Smile a lot; point at beautiful flowers or exquisite buildings. Then find a place that is private in a public space; lay out a blanket, pour your date a drink, give her some chocolate; open the book of Poetry to a poem that is romantic, and enjoy the moment together.

On the poetry First Thought:
Warning: A saccharoidal poem is hazardous to remaining cool and you may become too cheesy.

On the poetry Two:
Pablo Neruda is a good choice much better than something by Bukowski. Bukowski is great, but it is more private literature... not something I would read to get my wife feeling that warm feeling.

Here is one Poem to read together:

from The Book of Questions

Tell me, is the rose naked
or is that her only dress?

Why do trees conceal
the splendor of their roots?

Who hears the regrets
of the thieving automobile


Is there anything in the world sadder
than a train standing in the rain?
