Valentine Love

My favorite subject in high school was literature, and my favorite part of literature, prose.  When I first read this poem, I fell in love with it.  Then a little later, my first boyfriend Lloyd gave me a Valentine's card 42 years ago with the poem on the front. 


We were very much in love; and yes, I still have the card.  




And after all these years, this is still my favorite poem.  I guess it's because I really am a romantic at heart.




I'm linking up today to Ricki Jill Treleaven Art @ Home for more favorite love poems.  So, I'm gonna scoot over there now and get me some more love.


Happy Valentine's Day!

I love that poem too, although no romantic boyfriend ever sent me a copy :( Hope you have a nice Valentine day.

Such a sweet story. Wonderful memories of first love. You made quite the pair. It is a poem for the ages. To have your own personal copy to last a lifetime, from one so special is priceless. Happy Valentine's Day to you. ENJOY.
