SOME VALENTINE SYMBOLS

Heart
Emotions are feelings such as love, happiness, anger, or fear. A long time ago, people believed that all emotions were found in the heart. In later years, they thought only the emotion of love was connected with the heart. The heart is still a symbol of love, and because of this, it is also a symbol of Valentine’s Day.

Red Rose
The rose was a favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Red is a color that stands for strong feelings. This is why the red rose is a flower of love.

Lace
Lace is a pretty fabric made by weaving together fine threads. Hundred of years ago, women carried lace handkerchiefs. If a woman dropped her handkerchief, a man nearby might pick it up and return it to her. Sometimes a woman might see a man she wanted to meet. She might drop her lace handkerchief on purpose to encourage romance. Soon people thought of romance when they thought of lace. They began using paper lace to decorate chocolate boxes and Valentine cards.

Gloves
Years ago, when a man proposed marriage to a woman, he asked “for her hand.” The hand became a symbol of marriage and love. Soon gloves also became a symbol of love.

Rings
In some countries, men and women exchange rings when they become engaged or married. Two or three hundred years ago, Valentine’s Day was a popular day for giving an engagement ring. An engagement ring usually had a stone or jewel set in it. Diamonds are common in today’s engagement rings.

Cupid
Son of Venus, goddess of love. He could cause people to fall in love by piercing them with one of his magic arrows.

THE MAGIC OF LOVE

By Helen Steiner Rice

Love is like magic

And it always will be,

For love still remains

Love’s sweet mystery.

 

Love works in ways

That are wondrous and strange

And there’s nothing in life

That Love cannot change!

Love is unselfish,

Understanding and kind,

For it sees with its heart

And not with its mind!

 

Love is the answer

That everyone seeks-

Love is the language

That every heart speaks.

 

St Valentines Day Poetry

Forgotten
(Algernon Swinburne 1837-1909)

 

I remember the way we parted,

The day and the way we met;

You hoped we were both broken-hearted,

And knew we should both forget.

And the best and the worst of this is

That neither is most to blame,

If you have forgotten my kisses,

And I have forgotten your name.

 

Some Time
(Eleanor Farjeon)

 

Some time! some time!

When will it be?

It might be winter,

It might be spring,

With snow on the ground

Or fruit on the tree,

Some time! some time!

When will it be?

 

Some one! some one!

What is he like?

Perhaps a coal-man,

Perhaps a king.

Will he come on a horse

Or a motor-bike?

Some one! some one!

What is he like?

 

Somewhere! somewhere!

Oh, but where?

In a hollow

Or on a height?

Over the water?

At the fair?

Somewhere! somewhere!

Oh, but where?

 

Some time! some time!

When will it be?

It might be morning,

It might be night,

With the sun in the sky

Or the moon on the sea –

Some time! some time!

When will it be?

The Size of Your Heart
(Author Unknown)

 

It isn't the size of your house as such

That matters so much at all.

It's the gentle hand and its loving touch,

That make it great or small.

 

The friends who come and the hour they

Who out of your house depart,

Will judge it not by the style you show,

But rather by the size of your heart.

 

It isn't the size of your head so much,

It isn't the wealth you found.

That will make you happy — it's how you touch

The lives that are all around.

 

For making money is not hard —

To live life well is an art:

How people love you, how they regard,

Is all in the size of your heart.
