Valentine’s Day this year also brought a poem shared by poet Elspeth Murray (using Twitter) — short enough to write on a card, as she pointed out.
A BetrothalChocolate heart from Hotel Chocolat in MK — highly recommended.
E. J. Scovell
Put your hand on my heart, say that you love me as
The words upon the hills cleave to the hills’ contours
I will uphold you, trunk and shoot and flowering sheaf,
And I will hold you, roots and fruit and fallen leaf.
Heigh ho. That could well be it for another 18 years...
PS also a chance to play with the new iMovie, complete with cheesy effects.
