So ceaselessly shall shine,
The little birds will know thou art
Mine own true Valentine.

I Carry Your Heart With Me

I carry your heart with me,
(I carry it in my heart)
I am never without it.
(anywhere I go you go, my dear;and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
Here is the deepest secret nobody knows,
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart,
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

By: E. E. Cummings.

Than peaches and a plum,
Than chocolate hearts,
And cherry tarts,
And berry bubblegum.

By: Jack Prelutsky.

Best Valentine Mom

On Valentine’s day, I think of you, Mom;
I love you really a lot.
In my life, that’s full of many good things,
You’re the very best thing I’ve got!
It’s Valentine’s Day, so I want to say,
I’m the luckiest kid anywhere;
You’re the sweetest, greatest, best mom around
And I want you to know I care!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Mom!
