I apologize for the abundance of valentines here, but I’m liking some of these poems I’m reading online (forgive me for not having a life but having internet connection)
Shall we compare our hearts to a garden –
with beautiful blooms, straggling weeds,
swooping birds and sunshine, rain –
and most importantly, seeds.
– Grey Livingston
A hundred hearts would be too few
To carry all my love for you.
They who meet on an April night are forever lost in love,
if there’s moonlight all about and there’s no moon above.
Will you love me in December as you do in May,
Will you love me in the good old fashioned way?
When my hair has all turned gray,
Will you kiss me then and say,
That you love me in December as you do in May?
– James J. Walker
A bell is no bell ’til you ring it,
A song is no song ’til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay –
Love isn’t love
‘Til you give it away.
– Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, You Are Sixteen (Reprise)
When you’re attracted to someone it just means that your subconscious is attracted to their subconscious, subconsciously, so what we know as fate is two neuroses knowing that they’re a perfect match. – Jeff Arch, Nora Ephron, and David S. Ward, Sleepless in Seattle
