Valentine’s Day Poetry

Love 02-13-2013

Love is like a tree

It starts as a seed

You plant it you nurture it

And let it grow

And soon enough it becomes a gigantic

creation of life

Its branches wrap around you

It can stand through the heaviest thunderstorm

It changes with each season

But it eventually becomes something solid

you can count on

“Love” by Jennifer Gilmartin, Age 15

 Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans – 1993 Edition, Page 31

Note: This poem written by my oldest daughter reminds me of her birthday and Valentine’s Day. I think she’s grateful she was born on the 13th instead of the 14th of February, because I might have named her Valentino. Today she is known by the name Jamarie and if you click on her name, you will see what a lovely person she has become.
