Close To My Heart


 Be My Valentine


On
 this Valentine's day
I
am keeping close to my heart .....

my grandmother's valentines

a sweet blessing on a cold winter's day
an armchair journey of the heart
and
 how like a queen comes forth the lovely moon.



Oh! be still  my romantic heart.

  1. Sweet valentines from (to) your grandma. I need to get out postcards sent to my grandmother when she was young. Post cards must have been quite popular as she has quite a collection. Quite a few are valentines. I love your old books. That could be our bookshelf!
