True Valentine – Poem by Lisa M. Scuderi-Burkimsher

Gentle man,
kind heart,
chooses her favorite gift.

Bright red roses,
the smell of spring,
although snowing.

Walks miles home,
protecting the delicate flowers under his coat,
surmising his wife’s smile.

He puts the key in the door,
and on the other side,
his valentine awaits.
