A Valentine Delight


“I always tell students that writing a poem and publishing it are two quite separate things, and you should write what you have to write, and if you're afraid it's going to upset someone, don't publish it.” – Wendy Cope

British author Cope has attracted a popular following with her lighthearted, often comical poetry, as well as achieving literary credibility winning two major writing awards.   She has a keen eye for everyday, mundane aspects of life, especially the desires, frustrations, hopes, confusions and emotions in intimate relationships.   
A much sought-after presenter at workshops and           classrooms, she writes for – and speaks – to both children and adult audiences. For Saturday’s Poem and in honor of this coming Tuesday, here is Cope’s,

Valentine 

My heart has made its mind up
And I’m afraid it’s you.

Whatever you’ve got lined up
My heart has made its mind up
And if you can’t be signed up
This year, next year will do.

My heart has made its mind up
And I’m afraid it’s you.
