Old Valentine's Day Poem
|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.
