(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”
