Valentines (In the dark)


(Old English tune, Lyrics by Homer H. Harbour)

1. In the dark of the winter when cold winds do blow,
Saint Valentine’s Day comes like flowers in the snow;
Bringing thoughts of our dear ones whose love we renew,
By sending them greetings of friendship still true.

2. There are hearts and gay* ribbons and birds on the wing,
Gilt, lace and red roses, with every find thing;
But the love in our hearts sending gifts on their way,
Is best of all blessings on Valentine’s Day.

*Idea: Substitute “bright”

      1. Ditto! My birthday is Valentine’s — years and years ago, a friend wrote this rhyme on a card to me….thank you for posting. Do you know the original source…? Blessings,
        Maya B.
