Valentine’s Day


Oh valentine how sweet thou are

You tickle my every thought

You captivate my waking hour

Such happiness you have wrought


Clouds of reddened hearts appear

Whenever my mind rests on you

Knowing that you are near

As soft as a morning dew


And such a day that comes but once

A year to celebrate your beauty

I become as mindless as a dunce

To serve your every duty


To sing your praises through the day

Is nothing but a wish for me

Through the clouds of red hearts

There is nothing but you that I see


And so I close this bit of verse

To recollect and to admire

From my belittling self-directed curse

To see you shine through that mire.

About Barbara Blackcinder

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.
