Please can you help find a poem for my old Mum.
It starts 'When I was young and in my prime .... . the next line ends in ... Valentine but that's all she can remember.
Any help appreciated - thanks
" When I was young and in my prime,
I was kissing the girls the most of my time,
And if any girl here thinks she can fool me,
She '11 find me as young as I used to be."
The Old Man - Eugene Field.
Accept, dear girl, this little token.
And, if between the lines you seek.
You '11 find the love I 've often spoken —
The love my dying lips shall speak.
Our little ones are making merry
'er am'rous ditties rhymed in jest,
But in these words (though awkward — very)
The genuine article 's expressed.
You are as fair and sweet and tender.
Dear brown-eyed little sweetheart mine.
As when, a callow youth and slender,
I asked to be your Valentine.
A Valentine to my wife - Eugene Field
