Valentine’s Day Sonnet~♡

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wrote a not-so-serious Shakespearean sonnet.  Enjoy!


There was great happiness around the world

Young marriages made and old ones renewed

Dances, good spirits, and white dresses twirled

Yet love his majesty hadn’t valued

Ban of marriage though sinful accepted

To have no more weddings from this day on

St. Valentine just simply neglected

His power to marry never withdrawn

We remember him and all that he said

Because the king cried out, “Off with his head!”

Have a very happy Valentine’s Day, and be sure to share the tidbits of history from the sonnet with your loved ones!
