On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.

~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)

Margaret tempest

by Margaret Tempest (died 1982)
'The Witch's House'
About 1920
Margaret Tempest's children's book illustrations
are characterised by subtle shades of watercolour
as seen in this image of a witch's house.
Tempest began her illustrating career in the 1920s
and is best known as the illustrator of the long-running
series of children's books written by Alison Uttley,
which featured the characters Little Grey Rabbit and
Fuzzypeg the Hedgehog.
Tempest illustrated the first 30 of them until 1970
and also wrote and illustrated 20 books of her own
in the 1940s and 1950s, including the Pinky Mouse
and Curley Cobbler series.
