PDF Bookmarks – Valentine for the Earth, ready-to-print

 

To You, My Valentine

Oh, it will be fine

To rocket through space

And see the reverse

Of the moon’s dark face,

 

To travel to Saturn

Or Venus or Mars,

Or maybe discover

Some uncharted stars.
But do they have anything

Better than we?

Do you think, for instance,

They have a blue sea

 

For sailing and swimming?

Do the planets hills

With raspberry thickets

Where a song sparrow fills
The summer with music?

And do they have snow

To silver the roads

Where the school busses go?

 

Oh, I’m all for rockets

And worlds cold or hot,

But I’m wild in love

With the planet we’ve got!
