For her this rhyme is penned, whose luminous eyes,
Brightly expressive as the twins of Leda,
Shall find her own sweet name, that nestling lies
Upon the page, enwrapped from every reader.
"Come, pretty birds, present your lays,
And learn to chaunt a goddess praise;
Ye wood-nymphs, let your voices be
Employ'd to serve her deity:
More than a catbird hates a cat,
Or a criminal hates a clue,
Or the Axis hates the United States,
That's how much I love you.
Sent to a friend who had complained that I was glad enough to see
him when he came, but didn't seem to miss him if he stayed away.
And cannot pleasures, while they last,
In May my heart was breaking-
Oh, wide the wound, and deep!
And bitter it beat at waking,
And sore it split in sleep.
MOTLEY I count the only wear
That suits, in this mixed world, the truly wise,
Who boldly smile upon despair
And shake their bells in Grandam Grundy's eyes.
A friend to light a candle
When darkness overcomes.
A friend to hold you closer
When distant thunder drums.
Hi sweetie pie so divine
Your beauty is so refined
The day has come to define
You’re my lucrative Valentine
Right Reverend Bishop Valentinus,
The First Valentine Poem
Charles d'Orleans (1394-1465) , a French royal, the grandchild of Charles V, and the Duke of Orleans, has been credited with writing the first Valentine card, in the form of a poem for his wife. Charles wrote the poem in 1415 at age 21, in the first year of his captivity while being held prisoner in the Tower of London after having been captured by the British at the Battle of Agincourt. The Battle of Agincourt forms the centerpiece of Shakespeare's historical play Henry V, in which Charles appears as a character with a number of lines. At age 16, Charles had married the 11-year-old Bonne of Armagnac in a political alliance, which explains the age difference he mentions in his poem. (Coincidentally, I share his wife's birthday, the 19th of February.) Unfortunately, Charles would be held prisoner for a quarter century and would never see his wife again, as she died before he was released. Why did Charles call his wife "Valentine"? Well, his mother's name was Valentina Visconti...
Valentine has come
in the smooth dispersal fragrance of the newest blooming flowers
in the thrilled embroidered wings of airborne butterflies
in the sweet songs of spring birds, in the voices of cuckoo
Valentine's Day a day of sunshine and romance
Valentine's night a night of moonlight and kisses
by Michael R. Burch

Valentine, Valentine, my joy and my hope
Won't you come tonight?
To hug me close to you
And never let me go!
Valentine's Day is for serious lovers
What Christmas is for dedicated Christians
Valentine's Day is not for devious lovers
Valentine is about love for other humans
WOW! Valentine´s Day is coming
Valentine´s Day is now Today!
WOW! that old feeling has come back again
Saint Valentine sat cackling in a cave
In the year the twilight sun shone like mad
Making some seeking the saint's rose so sad.
Peppermint the dead tongues of the saint crave
Will you be my Valentine?
You need not love me or be mine
All there is for you to know
Is I love you, this I'll show
