A Midsummer Night Valentine

by Heather's Starting End

Poetry challenge: Valentines Day poem.

 
 
heart-calendar-12732102

Why today and not tomorrow,
Or perhaps even yesterday
To show your thanks with gestures,
For the love you feel each day?

Surprise me on a midsummer night,
Or a Tuesday, late afternoon
Not with chocolates or with roses,
But with your heart when in full bloom

Show your love not designated,
By a holiday of, store front clues
To remind you that you love me,
As I hope the other days you do

Dear sweet Valentine,
You are a saint
Please don’t get me wrong

But don’t you think it would be nice,
If this day could last,
Without your hint
Perhaps a whole year long?

  1. 🙂 “…Surprise me on a midsummer night,
    Or a Tuesday, late afternoon
    Not with chocolates or with roses,
    But with your heart when in full bloom…”

    I just love this verse – what a fanciful image.
