What a special day this is! Celebrated with all the vigour and enthusiasm all over the world.
A day of love, friendship, goodness and compassion.
Flowers are the symbol, cupid the passion and gaiety the celebrations.
It’s the day when St. Valentine wrote a letter to a fellow prisoner’s daughter before he was executed.
“To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
Then up he rose, and donn’d his clothes,
And dupp’d the chamber-door;
Let in the maid, that out a maid
Never departed more.”
— William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 5”
That’s Shakespeare! If it’s easy, then Shakespeare would have been read and not taught.
“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 shou’d be you.”
That’s Nursery Rhyme for us lesser mortals, and it says it all.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
