I’d like to make a valentine

All shiny red and bright

That’s trimmed with pretty flowers

And three doves of pearly white.

I’d like to make a valentine

As fancy as could be,

And send it on its way at once

With love to you from me.

But I’m not very fancy

And I can’t draw too well;

So I’ve made a little plain one,

And hope that it will tell

That I am very fond of you,

And that it’s sent to say,

“I wish you lots of happiness

Today—and every day.”
