Valentines Day Dress It Up!

Valentine’s Day!
Pure fun.
Simple decorations can turn a coffee table into a place to sit and talk, read poetry and remember that romance is alive and well and living within!

Candle holders of every shape and size bring warmth and generate smiles.

Pinks and reds carry the love theme.

Have fun decorating, and do not worry about perfect matches!

Need some great poems? Here are some snippets.

Lord Byron is there for you!
“She Walks in Beauty”

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes……

“To Ellen”
Oh! might I kiss those eyes of fire,
A million scarce would quench desire:
Still would I steep my lips in bliss,
And dwell an age on every kiss;….

There is also Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s poetry:
“Sonnets from the Portuguese”
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and Ideal Grace
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight……

And my favorite! Anne Bradstreet
“To My Dear and Loving Husband”
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye woman, if you can…..

All partial poems, all fun to read and recognize that love is something to celebrate continually!
I hope you find many ways to have a fun filled, romantic date time with your spouse! It is life in the veins of your marriage!byDeborahonTuesday, February 08, 2011Military Life:,,
