Ever Love Held

sketch by Petrina Lesko (Feb 2011)

None so sweet, none so tasty,
This the bestest. better kind,
First loves, a love so hasty,
Ever love held, the child's kind.

Dreams of cakes and candy too,   
Huggable bears, hearts in mind,
Puppies day dream, I wuv you,
Ever love held, the child's kind.

Illustration by Jutta Ash
Found over at Monday's Child

Birds sing of morning songs here,
Carry forth ribbons to wind,
Cute little bows, saying we're,
Ever love held, the child's kind.

This the bestest, better kind,
Ever love held, the child's kind.

Linking up to the following inspirational sites for this Valentines post:   Monday's Child: Fair of face, a day late for 'Sunday Sketches' over at Blue Chair Diary and finally for the inspiration of this Valentine 'Sweater' in my sketch Illustration Friday.

I hope everyone had a great weekend,
and that this will be
 a very special
Valentines Day.

Enjoy your week ahead.
