A Valentine Rhyme

Fat little cupids, in the atmosphere,
Shooting, from full quivers, their arrows far and near.
Hearts, usually unresponsive, begin to quickly beat
And often lay their love at their beloved's feet.

Men become inspired to propose to the one they love.
Women view their potential mate as surely sent from above.
Guys and gals, young and old, react romantically
To things they'd taken for granted only recently.

Friends who share affection go outside their way
To make another feel special and brighten up their day.
Words rarely spoken are suddenly bravely said.
Loneliness then recedes and joy comes in its stead.

Soon, it will be Valentine's Day. Don't let it pass you by,
Forgetting even a small token, your loved one will cry.
Be it flowers or candy, a card, or diamond ring,
Any display of affection will make another's heart sing.

A lone tree, with one apple,
Is not enough to share.
A daisy's not a daisy,
Without the petals there.

In every part of nature
(In earth and sky and sea),
The parts must fit together
To set the beauty free.

Man was made for woman,
Two parts to make a whole;
As it is in God's own plan,
Soul supporting soul.

Soul Supporting Soul

A rose, set in a desert,
Will not a garden make.
A single drop of water
Will never form a lake.
Becoming One ...

Two individuals, walking alone,
Reach out to take God's hand ...
A joining of hearts to what His will is,
Melting their hearts as His own.

I Can't Tell You

I can't tell you just how long I'll love you.
But, this I know. Should every sea run dry
And all the stars come tumb'ling from God's Heaven, 
Darling, you'll still see the love light in my eyes.

I can't tell you just how long I'll need you.
But, just as long as flowers need the rain,
As long as song birds need a song to sing, my Darling, 
I'll say I love you, need you just the same.

Alone was I searching for my love. I knew not who.
You came and I found everything I needed. Dear, in you.

I can't tell you just what life will bring us;
Of happiness, the sunshine, or the rain.
But, this I know. We'll live and cherish always, 
Darling. Every day we'll fall in love, again.

Alone was I. You came along and all my dreams came true!
My Knight in shinning white, Oh, take this Lady Fair away with you.

I can't tell you just what life may bring us.
But, this I know. We'll face it side by side.
We'll love our God and look to Him for help and blessings,
Make our plans to meet Him in the sky!

We'll make our plans to meet Him, you and I.

A marriage is to have and to hold
Divine protection out of the cold.
For, one cannot be warm all alone.
We need one special to call our own.

God's Valentine

God sent a special Valentine
For all the world to see.
I hope you've tasted His sweetness.
It lasts eternally.

It leaves you white as new-fallen snow.
It brings new life into your soul;
This blood-red Valentine of Love,
Sent from the Father up above.

Yes, sweeter than Valentine cupids
Was the Baby on the hay;
Better than any famed romance,
Was the plan from foundation laid.

Gentler than cooing lovebirds,
More lasting than the sea,
Is the Sacrifice of the ages
God made for you and me!

If You Carrot All for Me
a Fruit and Veg Valentine Poem 


Cabbage always has a heart;
Green beans string along.
You're such a cute tomato,
Will you peas to me belong?
You've been the apple of my eye,
You know how much I care;
So lettuce get together, 
We'd make a perfect pear.

Now, something's sure to turnip
To prove you can't be beet;
So, if you carrot all for me
Let's let our tulips meet.
Don't squash my hopes and dreams now, 
Bee my honey, dear;
Or tears will fill potato's eyes,
While sweet corn lends an ear.
I'll cauliflower shop and say,
Your dreams are parsley mine.
I'll work and share my celery,
So be my valentine.

The legend says St. Valentine
Was in a prison cell
Thinking of his little flock
He had always loved so well
And wanting to assure them
Of his friendship and his love
He picked a bunch of violets
And sent them by a dove.

And on the violets' leaves
He pierced these lines divine
That simply said, "I Love You"
And "I'm your Valentine"
So through the years that followed
From that day unto this
Folks still send messages of love
And seal them with a kiss.

Because a Saint in prison
Reached through prison bars one day
And picked a bunch of violets
And sent them out to say
That faith and love can triumph
No matter where you are
For faith and love are greater
Than the strongest prison bar.

Redneck Valentine, author unknown 

Collards is green 
my dog's name is Blue 
and I'm so lucky 
to have a sweet thang like you. 

Yore hair is like cornsilk 
a-flapping in the breeze 
Softer than Blue's 
and without all them fleas. 

You move like the bass 
which excite me in May. 
You ain't got no scales 
but I luv you anyway. 

Yo're as satisfy'n as okry 
jist a-fry'n in the pan. 
Yo're as fragrant as "snuff" 
right out of the can. 

You have som'a yore teeth 
for which I am proud; 
I hold my head high 
when we're in a crowd. 

On special occasions, 
when you shave under yore arms, 
well, I'm in hawg heaven, 
and awed by yore charms. 

Still them fellers at work, 
they all want to know, 
what I did to deserve 
such a purdy, young doe. 

Like a good roll of duct tape 
yo're there fer yore man, 
to patch up life's troubles 
and fix what you can. 

Yo're as cute as a junebug 
a-buzzin' overhead. 
You ain't mean like those far ants 
I found in my bed. 

Cut from the best cloth 
like a plaid flannel shirt, 
you spark up my life 
more than a fresh load of dirt. 

When you hold me real tight 
like a padded gunrack, 
my life is complete; 
Ain't nuttin' I lack. 

Yore complexion, it's perfection, 
like the best vinyl sidin' 
despite all the years, 
yore age, it keeps hidin'. 

Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie 
with a RC cold drank, 
we go together 
like a skunk goes with stank. 

Some men, they buy chocolate 
for Valentine's Day; 
They git it at Wal-Mart, 
it's romantic that way. 

Some men git roses 
on that special day 
from the cooler at Kroger. 
"That's impressive," I say. 

Some men buy fine diamonds 
from a flea market booth. 
"Diamonds are forever," 
they explain, suave and couth. 

But for this man, honey, 
these just won't do. 
Cause yo're way too special, 
you sweet thang you. 

I got you a gift, 
without taste nor odor, 
more useful than diamonds....... 



WHAT'S AMORE? (sung to Dean Martin's "Amore")

When the moon hits your eye
Like a big pizza pie
That's amore.

When an eel bites your hand
And that's not what you planned
That's a moray.

When our habits are strange
And our customs deranged
That's our mores.

When your horse munches straw
And the bales total four
That's some more hay.

When a sand-coated board 
buffs your nails, yes milord 
that's emory.

And our friend Mitch Albom 
every Tuesday would come 
to hear Morrie. 

When two patterns of lines 
cross to form new designs 
that's a moiré. 

The briefest of pauses 
in poetic clauses, 
they are morae.

When Othello's poor wife
She gets stabbed with a knife
That's a Moor, eh?

When a Japanese knight
Used a sword in a fight
That's Samurai.

~ Frank Rubin ~

And one more verse:

When the taffeta gown
looks like waves swirling round
that's a moire



A group of professionals posed this question to a group of 4 to 8-year-olds,
"What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."
Rebecca - age 8

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth."
Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
Karl - age 5

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
Chrissy - age 6

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
Danny - age 7

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."
Bobby - age 5

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend that you hate."
Nikka - age 6

"There are two kinds of love. Our love. God's love. But God makes both kinds of them."
Jenny - age 4

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."
Noelle - age 7

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well."
Tommy - age 6

"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night."
Clare - Age 5

"Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken."
Elaine - age 5

"Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."
Chris - age 8

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."
Mary Ann - age 4

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones."
Lauren - age 4

"I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only picks on me because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her."
Bethany - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you."
Karen - age 7

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget."
Jessica - age 8
