VALENTINE'S DAY, by            
First Line: Brimful of anger, not of love
Last Line: Resolved to fight, though sure to die.
Subject(s): Love


BRIMFUL of anger, not of love,
The champion sends his foe a glove;
But I that have a double share
Of the softer passion, send a pair.
Nor think it, dearest Delia, cruel,
That I invite you to a duel.
Ready to meet you face to face,
At any time, in any place:
Nor shall I leave you in the lurch,
Though you should dare to fix the church.
There come equipped with all your charms,
A ring and licence are my arms.
I will the unequal contest try,
Resolved to fight, though sure to die.
