The Totally Optional Prompt is Romance

This week's challenge, a special challenge for me, is to write a romantic poem. I've never been mistaken for a romantic and have no idea what makes a poem romantic, so I need a little help. When I write something how can I tell if it's romantic, what will it look like? What makes a story into a romantic story? What does romantic mean anyways?

Remarks on the prompt, your latest poetry discovery, or this 'poetry exchange' blog can be made as comments to this posting. Late Wednesday night, between one rerun and another, I'll post a Request For Poems, where you can leave a link to your poem inspired by the prompt, or any other poem you want to share.
