Nor had she, fair Queen of Sheba, Near such grace as thine, Sweet, my valentine.
Once a year, I've sent you, darling,
Such a song and sign; Made your voice outvie the starling;
Lips like ruby wine. Now, I'd make this one day all days,
And, sweet valentine, Ask you to be my loved one always,
Mine, and only mine; My own valentine.
Yes, I wish all intervening
Days could brightly shine On our love, and ever meaning,
Just one valentine, So that thus 'twill be forever,
Love of mine and thine Shall grow closer yet together,
Clinging as a vine,
Sweet, my valentine.
