An exquisite invention this,
Worthy of Love's most honeyed kiss, --
This art of writing billet-doux --
In buds, and odors, and bright hues!
In saying all one feels and thinks
In clever daffodils and pinks;
In puns of tulips; and in phrases,
Charming for their truth, of daisies.
-- John Henry Leigh Hunt, "Love-Letters Made of Flowers," 1863
I hope love blooms for you this Valentine's Day!
