I loved thee, though I told thee not,
Right earlily and long,
Thou wert my joy in every spot,
My theme in every song.
And when I saw a stranger face
Where beauty held the claim,
I gave it like a secret grace
The being of thy name.
And all the charms of face or voice
Which I in others see
Are but the recollected choice
Of what I felt for thee.
-by John Clare
That is my favorite poem. I found it in a drawer in my pensione in Florence whenI lived there for College. I hold it dear and love, love, love it! Who hasn't felt this way?
These are my favorite things this Valentines Day...
|NUFF SAID and I do-TRUST.|
|Basil Lime Sorbet! Delectable|
|I could do this always- husb would loves.|
|I think this is just perfection|
|Reminds me of a grown up Tallulah|

|This is a great idea for a party gift or parting gift...|
