Valentine - Poem by Janice Walkden

For at least a month before the date
Red hearts and flowers will decorate
The windows of shops all over the place
For Valentines day and the human ‘chase’
Its a big thing too these days
money to be made in the Valentines craze
Something that started so long ago
When a priest disobeyed Claudius’s law
He continued to marry despite the ban
but the emperor found out the plan
The priest Valentine was punished and locked away
but he fell in love one bright sunny day
the jailers daughter made his heart pitter patter
he wrote her letters but it didn’t matter
February 14 was the end of his living
So think about poor valentine
when hearts and flowers you are giving!
