To My Dearest Valentine

Valentine Greetings from the 1800s.

Pray, Sweetheart, send me just a line,
To say you’ll be my Valentine.

By Dandelion post I send,
This Valentine to my friend,
May every flying seedlet be
A message of love to thee.

The honey dew is on thy lip,
Fain would I thee entwine.
And draughts of love in gladness sip –
My heart’s own Valentine.

Ah, no, by all that’s good and fair,
Your love shall be my chiefest care,
And heav’n and earth shall witness be,
That mortal never loved like me.

Valentine Poem 1840

Sweetly by thy side reclining-
All of joy and peace are mine,
Hand in hand – so gently twining
Thou art mine and I am thine.

Where the bending branches shading,
From the rays of summer heat –
This true heart with love unfading
Vows of love – shall oft repeat.
