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!
