I fell in love with Valentine's Day
as I proudly carried the box my mother
to hold my valentines into my second grade classroom.
Today I am thinking about things that are lovely
seem to belong in the month of February
like tiny hearts, flowers,
ribbons and lace.
Things like chocolate, pink nail polish and bubble bath.
from my dad to my grandmother
I am so glad that after a long, cold, dark January
there is a warm, red day in the middle of February .
