Valentine's Legend - Adaptable

[Substitute names for your friends]

According to the legend, romantics often say, Birds will choose their mates on Valentine’s Day. And, according to the rumor, I just heard today, James chose Marie the very same way! It was in the springtime of his young life, While looking for a sweetheart to become his wife. And she was young and lovely with eyes that shined, As she gleamed and beamed at her Valentine. So they became sweethearts on a very special date, As Cupid shot his arrow, aimed so true and straight. Now, when birds choose their mates on Valentine’s Day, They smile as James gives to Marie a red bouquet!
--James E. Tate
