Old Valentine's Day Rhyme
|From an old English nursery rhyme, first published in Gammer Gurton's Garland (1784).|
The rose is red, the violet's blue,
The honey's sweet, and so are you.
Thou are my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine:
The lot was cast and then I drew,
And Fortune said it should be you.
