ST. VALENTINE'S DAY, by                    
First Line: "the rose is red, the violet's blue / the honey's sweet, and so are you"
Last Line: And fortune said it should be you


THE rose is red, the violet's blue,
The honey's sweet, and so are you.
Thou art 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.
