Will You Be Mine?
Valentine, you make me silly;
You make my heart beat willy-nilly;
When I’m with you, the world is hazy;
Valentine, you drive me crazy! Valentine, when we’re apart,
My need for you goes off the chart.
Will you be mine? Can I be thine?
Say you’ll be my Valentine!
By Joanna Fuchs at Poem Source
I am a little Cupid,
And I come to visit thee,
To tell you that I love you,
And to know if you love me.
And if you’ll be my little wife,
And come along with me,
I’ll take you to a lovely place,
And pretty flowers you’ll see.
By K. Uniake at Apples for Teacher
You may not “carrot” all for me
The way I care for you
You may “turnip” your nose
When I plead with you
But if your heart should “beet” with mine
Forever “lettuce” hope
There is no reason in the world
Why we two “cantaloupe.”

Kiss Me Not
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Please don’t kiss me,
cuz I have the flu.

5 Little Valentines
Five little valentines were having a race
The first little valentine was frilly with lace.
The second little valentine had a funny face.
The third little valentine said, “I love you”.
The fourth little valentine said, “I do too”.
The fifth little valentine was sly as a fox.
He ran the fastest to the valentine box.
