~To my Valentine…

   William Worcester Churchill
  The Rose is Red, the Violet’s Blue
The Honey’s Sweet and so are You
Thou are my love and I am thine,

I drew thee to my Valentine
The lot was Cast and then I drew
and Fortune said it shou’d be You.

This Valentine's Day poem can be found
in Gammer Gurton's Garland, a 1784

Art by William Worcester Churchill
(1858 – 1926)
