Love and Valentines


Ginger Hutton

There would have to be something wrong with someone who could throw out a child’s first Valentine card saying, “I love you, Mommy.”


Charles Lamb

It is good to love the unknown.


Anne Sexton

The cot we shared is almost a prison
where I can’t say buttercup, bobolink,
sugarduck, pumpkin, love ribbon, locket,
valentine, summergirl, funnygirl and all
those nonsense things one says in bed.


Lorenz Hart

Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable.


William Shakespeare

Tomorrow is Saint Valentine’s day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
