Valentine's Poetry

"I think of thee at Eventide
When shines the star of Love-
When earth is garnished like a Bride,
And all is bright above-
I think of thee when orient day
Puts on its golden wings,
And mounts upon its bright'ning way,
in beauty like the spring."
~"Forget-Me-Nots
A Victorian Book of Love

Your choice of poem is beautiful.
It is very similar to the one I have on my sidebar.
The Victorians certainly knew how to express affection...

Beautiful! Valentine's Day was a big day for the Victorians. They had such beautiful Cards and pop up Valentine's.

Gosh, this is a beautiful poem. I HEART the locket. What would it be like to live in Victorian times? Did you see the PBS series? It was pretty awesome, the ladies could not do without a few modern day necessities and cheated!

Happy Valentine's Day, Bonnie
