Myra, Iphigene, and Fats here.
We are very excited to do one of our rare collaborative blogposts. We thought it would be quite fitting since it’s rare that Valentine’s Day would fall exactly on a Poetry Friday. Since we are on a love-binge this week, we are here to share with you the love poems that spoke to us today. If you wish to make this a very poetic Valentine’s Day, I suggest you head over to the beautiful Linda from Teacher Dance who is hosting the Lovefest this week.
Like what I always do (Myra), I took screenshot photos of the webpage where I found the poems and edited it using an iPhone app. Enjoy dear friends!
