Chocolate Covered Valentine

Updated on August 10, 2013
Source

Pretty pink envelope in Georgie's dirty little hand

Thumbprints smudged over her name

"Susie Lou"

Thought bubble above his head floats daydream

"I love you"

Shyly he hands the card to little miss

Dumbfounded by her blue eyes, freckles, and purple rubber bands

She flutters her lashes and squeals

"For me?"

He stammers and stutters and thinks

"Oh, I have to pee!"

His little ears flush turning red as a beet

As she opens a dainty little purse

He picks at his seat

She pulls out a card all trimmed in blue

Then pecks him on the cheek

"This one's for you"

His eyes cross and he clacks his knees

But before the purse snaps shut

He see's

Four more little cards all in a row

Noticing she shrugs and boldly states

These are for Jimmy, Joey, Billy and Bo

The top of his head explodes into flames

He gapes open mouthed as little skirt skips away

He watches her pig-tail bounce up and down

And he sniffs the little card

"Yuck, perfume" inducing a frown

He stomps away folding the card

Into his pocket it goes

Settling into a deep warm mush

Frowning he wonders

"What is it...who knows?"

He pulls it back out to examine the cause

And finds his Valentine

Covered in chocolate

He whiffs it again and grins

Now it smells just fine

From the waist of his trousers Georgie pulls out another card

And skips on his way to carry

The next of his remaining four

This one is for Mary

      Thank you Laurenzo. I also enjoy the memories of those days. I'm not sure how they do it now , but I remember always looking forward to Valentines day to pass out all the little cards.

      Remember the box of valentine cards mom would buy when we were in grade school? No one was ever left out.

      Yes. Some of the teachers let us make hand made envelopes that she would put in front of the class so we could put the cards in for each student. Of course I always picked the prettiest card for whatever girl I had a crush on at the time. It was a very special time.

      This was absolutely delightful. I remember in grade school have this large box in which we all threw our Valentine's. Thanks for the nice memories.

      If there was an "adorable", I'd vote that up! How sweet. It reminds me of Valentines Day during my childhood. As adults, we don't usually pass around cards to multiple people!

      Thanks for sharing this with us, and have a great day.
