There's Snow Valentine, Like My Valentine

"The heart must have its time of snow . . . to rest in silence, and then to grow." ~ unknown

Even snowmen have hearts....and need a little Valentine before they melt away. Posted by Picasa

i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
~ e.e. cummings (American poet 1894-1962)
A funny little snowman wrapped in a warm red muffler, with button eyes and mouth and a long orange carrot nose and green pipe. On his coat we see a row of coal buttons. And there on his chest... a heart... a red heart.. ready for Valentine's Day.

My Valentine is my daughter Nyssa... and the poem is for her... for I truly carry her heart... I carry it in my heart... ALWAYS!

What a wonderful Valentine to your daughter! That snowman is certainly a masterpiece, usually they are heartless. Did you make this, or just come across it? Happy Valentine's Day!!

It was the big snow on Christmas Day and the 26th.  I think the spot light was there for the Christmas decorations.... fortuitous at most. I did think the heart was a really nice touch. :)
