Not Always Red

Everyone seems to associate red and pink with Valentine's Day, but I have in my shop evidence that it may not have been a hard and fast rule at one time.

The poetry in each card is so very romantic...

Come springtime
shower, or summer heat,
Come autumn gale
or wintery blast,
With fondest love
my heart will beat
For thee, my dear,
while life shall

I send you this to faintly show
The love that fills my heart,
But to voice its full intensity
Exceeds the poet's art.

I turn, dear love, to thee as turns
The flower to meet the sun,
E'en though, when clouds and storms arise,
It be not shown upon
Thus dear one, in thine eye I see
The only light that beams for me. 

The traditional red and pink is lovely too, of course!
Love hath swift wing
And sharpened darts
He laughs and sings
While wounding hearts

Happy Valentine's Day to all!
