We remember a martyr

Who lived compassion

With romance

And chocolate

And the trappings of love

We see on silver screens

Not the quiet everyday

Of comfortable mornings

Nor the silliness

Of midnight dances

As children pile into bed

It is not the love we know

That is recognized with glamour

And public declarations

But it is a day

To make a splash

To celebrate

Love as spectacle

Far beyond the love

That was sainted ~ Caroline A. Slee

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! 💗
