HAPPY VALENTINE DAY

Here are some Valentine rhymes for book characters.

To Harry Potter.
You really are swell.
My Valentine for you
is a secret spell.


For Horton the Elephant
Here's what I've sent,
A friend who is faithful
100%.


For Ferdinand the Bull
this Valentine Day,
I'm sending you
a flowery lei.


For the French girl, Madeline
a very special Valentine--
a package of drawing chalk
for drawing straight lines.
on the sidewalk.


      Now it is your turn.  Can you write a Valentine verse for your favorite character?  I had fun writing these verses.  I hope you have fun with yours.  Please share your creation in the comments below.

  1. For Valentine's
    I'll buy Popeye a pipe
    and Olive Oil a new dress.
    Sweetpea gets spinach
    and Brutus gets the boot.
    I'll loan Whimpy the money
    for a juicy hamburger,
    and I don't expect payment
    next Tuesday
    or any day there after.
