Love Poem of The Jilted Grammarian
Is her went?
Am she gone?
Did her leave I all alone?

Oh, cruel fate
To be so blind,
To take she 'way
And leave I 'hind.

Darn she!
Me hate she!
Me wish her were died!
To them is in love, may heart forbid
That they be done like I been did!

Roses are Red
Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Carnations are Sweet
And so are you.

And so are they
That send you this
And when we meet
We'll have a kiss.
Author Unknown

To-morrow is St. Valentine's Day
To-morrow is Saint Valentine's Day
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your windo
To be your Valentine.
William Shakespeare from Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 5

Going Steady
Valentine, O, Valentine,
I'll be your love and you'll be mine.
We'll care for each other, rain or fine,
and in 90 years we'll be 99.
Ian Serraillier

An Angry Valentine
If you won't be my Valentine
I'll scream, I'll yell, I'll bite.
I'll cry aloud, I'll start to whine
If you won't be my Valentine.
I'll frown and fret, I'll mope and pine, and
It will serve you right ---
If you won't be my Valentine
I'll scream, I'll Yell, I'll Bite!
Myra Cohn Livingston

Plenty of Love
Plenty of love,
Tons of kisses,
Hope some day,
To be your Mrs.

A Valentine Birthday
Again today
We draw the heart around
your name       Our red crayons
bright with love ---
the paper white as drifts
outside the door.

Snowfall on your birthday!
tumbling flake snipped
into lace    by the scissoring

Valentines!  Valentines!
Barbara Juster Esbensen

Love is like a Cabbage
My love is like a cabbage
Divided into two,
The leaves I give to others,
The heart I give to you.
Author Unknown

Veggie Valentine
You may not "carrot" all for me
The way I care for you.
You may "turnip" your nose
When I plead with you
But if your "heart" should "beet" with mine
Forever "lettuce" hope
There is no reason in the world 
Why we two "Cantaloupe."
Author Unknown

Conversation Hearts
Such meek
Little tokens
Sugary white,
Shy green, prom
Yellow and pink.
But spiced with
Mottoes: SURE
Each one like
A reckless wink.
Valerie Worth

Valentine Chocolates
Ordinary candy,
Boxed in a ruby
Heart, it grows
Exotic, mysterious;
Not to mention
The red cellophane
Wrapper, which
Looked through,
Shows a marvelous
Scarlet world.
Valerie Worth

He Sent His Love a Valentine
He sent his love a Valentine;
His love did not reply.
We never dare to care to sign
These things, I wonder why.
David McCord

If all the whole world's taxicabs
Came running to my call,
I'd park right by your door and honk
In the handsomest cab of all.

We'd drive to Spain, Maine or Spokane!
Could anything be sweeter
Than ticking off a million miles
Upon a metal meter?
X. J. Kennedy

The Kangaroo's Courtship

"Oh will you be my wallaby?"
Asked Mr. Kangaroo.
"For we could find so very many
Jumping things to do.
I have a pocket two feet wide
And deep inside, 
My dear, you'd ride---
Oh, come and be my bouncing bride,
My Valentine, my side-by-side
I am in love with you."
Jane Yolen
