A Valentine poem by Wendy Cope that speaks to me

I'm falling in love with the poems of Wendy Cope. This one is from "Serious Concerns" and it sums up how I feel on Valentine's day.

 

 

valentine.001

 

My heart made up its mind fourty-two years ago. We got married twelve years later. She's still my Valentine.

 

Valentine

by Wendy Cope

 

My heart has made its mind up


And I’m afraid it’s you.


Whatever you’ve got lined up,


My heart has made its mind up


And if you can’t be signed up


This year, next year will do.


My heart has made its mind up


And I’m afraid it’s you.

Serious Concerns
Serious Concerns - Wendy Cope So good! There was not a single poem in here that I didn't enjoy. They were clever, human and never pretentious.
