Valentine's Day

I'm following #litpickuplines on Twitter...some of them are pretty good. I couldn't help but add a couple of my own for the day. Marilyn Hacker's poem, Nearly a Valediction came to mind: "You happened to me."

The Poetry Foundation is celebrating the day with love poems.


The Valentine's Day Google doodle was created by the husband of an online friend. It's wonderful:
