If I Could Be The Postman from gradeONEderful

If I could be the postman

For just one single time,

I’d choose to carry Valentines

So lovely and so fine.

I would not mind the heavy load,

Or mind my tired feet,

If I could scatter happiness

All up and down the street.


I Like Hearts from JoyfulLearningInKC

Red hearts, white hearts,

Pink hearts, too.

I like purple hearts.

How about you?

Green hearts, yellow hearts,

Blue hearts, too.

I like rainbow hearts.

How about you?


To My Valentine from gradeONEderful

If apples were pears

And peaches were plums

And the rose had a different name.

If tigers were bears

And fingers were thumbs

I’d love you just the same.


I Love You More Than Applesauce by Jack Prelutsky

I love you more than applesauce,

Than peaches and a plum,

Than chocolate hearts,

And cherry tarts,

And berry bubble-gum.


Love is a Circle from gradeONEderful

Love is a circle, 

Round and round,

Loves goes up,

And love comes down,

Love is on the inside,

Trying to get out,

Love is whirling and twirling about.


For Valentine’s Day from gradeONEderful

Out of a snow cloud, cold and grey,

Something dropped on St. Valentine’s Day,

Whirling and twirling and soft and light,

Like wee little letters all dainty and white,

And I guess the sky children were sending down,

This Valentine straight to the children in town.


My Mother’s Chocolate Valentine by Jack Prelutsky

I bought a box of chocolate hearts,

a present for my mother,

they looked so good I tasted one,

and then I tried another one.


Valentine’s Day Handprint Poem from AdventuresInAbbyland

Sometimes you get discouraged

Because I am so small

And always leave my fingerprints

On furniture and walls

But everyday I’m growing –

I’ll be grown some day

And all those tiny handprints

Will surely fade away


I’m a Little Valentine from HappyValentine

I’m a little Valentine

Red and White,

With ribbons and lace,

I’m a beautiful sight.

I can say ‘I love you’, 

On Valentine’s Day

Just put me in an


And give me away.


This is My Hand from KidzActivities

This is my hand.

My hand will do

A thousand loving things for you

And you will remember

When I am tall…

That once my hand

Was just this small.
