The Look

In celebration of Valentine's Day, I am sharing my favorite Valentine poem. May all of your Valentine wishes and kisses be blessed!

The Look

Strephon kissed me in the spring,
Robin in the fall,
But Colin only looked at me
And never kissed at all.

Strephon's kiss was lost in jest,
Robin's lost in play,
But the kiss in Colin's eyes
Haunts me night and day.

~Sara Teasdale

Hello, I'm a member at ECSC too and had a great time at the party... I too donated prizes - digital downloads and had 3 winners! I loved your 'heart ramblings' journal - Dorothy's a lucky lady. That was so much fun wasn't it? But, it's a small world because I actually arrived here from the Birds of a Feather Valentine Blog Party... So from one bird to another - Best Wishes to you! ;o)
