Classic Valentine's Day Rhymes

Valentine's day is just around the corner. I love it, you love it, and the flower stores can't get enough of it. What is there not to love? Of course, if you don't have a partner to share the day with, you might be a little more inclined to not celebrate the day. However, it's just as easy to celebrate V-Day with your friends and family. There's no reason not to. Celebrating "love" is fantastic!

And one of the greatest way to celebrate love is through poetry. This literature genre has been around for millenniums and has been a way for thousands, even millions of poets to show their romantic side.

Like all famous works, classic Valentine's day rhymes have been used endlessly throughout the media in recent years. Because of this, the rhymes have often been altered to form something else entirely; thus, the original poem is no longer remembered or spoken by the younger generations. These short love poems are being lost by those around us.

To help turn the tide of incorrect poems being spouted everywhere, here is a list of some of the greatest classic rhymes in their own true form. I hope you enjoy them and they can help you celebrate this great Valentine's Day with your loved ones.

Be mine -  Now and forever
Be mine - You are my treasure
Be mine - Please tell me it's true
Be mine - I love you!
I love your beautiful smile
And your kind way,
The joy that you bring
To my life every day.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you!
There are many colours
But my favourite is blue
There are many boys/girls
But I love only you. / But I only think of you.

(The slashes means to choose only one! Obviously, if you are writing this to a girl, be sure to use the word "girls" and take out the word "boys". Also, select only one of the final lines to use. My favorite is "But I love only you." But of course, if this person is only a crush, be sure to choose the other.)

You are very sweet
You are very smart
And I love you
With all of my heart.
I love you today
As I have from the start,
And I'll love you forever
With all of my heart
Here's a special letter
Addressed to you
It says "You're my Valentine"
I hope I'm yours too.
Valentines, valentines
Red, white and blue
I'll make a nice one
And send it to you.
There are three little words
I want to say just to you
They are small, but true:
I LOVE YOU!
