A Valentine to Catherine

By Evaleen Stein

If you will be my True-Love,
I’ll tell you what I’ll do,
I’ll ask a little bluebird
To sing a song to you.
When first you see a violet
And softly pricking through
The garden-bed come crocuses
And golden tulips, too,
Then watch! for he’ll be coming,
The little bird of blue;
He’ll sing, “I love you, Sweetheart,
It’s true, true, true!”


A Red, Red Rose

by Robert Burns

O my luve’s like a red, red rose.

That’s newly sprung in June;
O my luve’s like a melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune.
So deep in luve am I;
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
Till a’the seas gang dry.
Till a’ the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun:
I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o’life shall run.
And fare thee weel my only Luve!
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile!

It’s All I Have to Bring To-day

by Emily Dickinson

It’s all I have to bring to-day,
This, and my heart beside,
This, and my heart, and All the fields,
And all the meadows wide.
Be sure you count, should I forget, —
Someone the sum could tell, —
This, and my heart, and all the bees
Which in the clover dwell.
