Happy Valentine's Day


Conversation Hearts

Such meek
Little tokens
Sugary white,
Shy green, prom
Yellow and pink.
But spiced with
Mottos: SURE
THING, OH BOY ---
Each one like
A reckless wink.
Valerie Worth

What a neat little poem. This brought back memories. I had forgotten completely about the love hearts we bought in paper cones at the lttle sweet shop on the corner which we used to shyly offer to our favourite class mates.. I remember the aniseed balls too, especially the red ones which we used as lipstick and the liquorice imps which we chose because they were so small the teachers wouldn't notice!
