poetry that punches…


I’m talking about love of life and adventure. Love and compassion for others. Love for the planet and the beauty of nature. Love for yourself. We could all do with a little more of that, right?

So, maybe today is the day that you celebrate all the love in your life right now – your family and friends, your spiritual connection, your animals, your neighbors, the great job you have or the excitement you feel about the house you’re planning to buy

One of the most famous Valentine’s Day poems appeared in Gammer Gurton’s Garland (1784), a collection of verse and nursery rhyme:
The rose is red, the violet’s blue,
 The honey’s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,
 And Fortune said it shou’d be you
