Love Me Tender

Love me tender
Love me sweet
Never let me go
Elvis Presley

I know no ways to mince it in love, but directly to say 'I love you."
Henry V Act V Scene II

It's that day, the day of counting and miscounting, of hoping and thrilling, then washing it away with gooey pink icing.

Much has been done over the years to mitigate the pain of St. Valentine's Day and those creepy little cards that you get, or don't get, that you wish for, and watch go to others.

I'm not certain how or why little kids understand romantic love but they surely do. They blush, giggle and act as foolish as William Shakespeare did when he fell for Anne Hathaway and as silly as all his characters do when they flip for each other.

It is a blind madness that knows no age boundary.

So long as I can breathe or I can see
so long lives your love which gives life to me
Much Ado About Nothing Act I; Scene I

O, how I long to have some chat with her!
The Taming of the Shrew Act II, Scene III

The course of true love never did run smooth.
A Midsummer Night's Dream Act I, Scene II

Dear Anne,

I am really in love with you. Would you ever want to go out with me?! If you do please write back. I think you are very pretty.

William Shakespeare

Dear William,

Of course I would go out with you. Please pick me up tonight at 7:00. I think you are adorible.

Millie, 4th grade
