Happy Valentine's Day!
Children's valentine cards have a play on words, and they are full of enthusiasm. Back in second grade when everyone shared valentines with all the other students we all were just trying to understand what we read, let alone understand the meaning of "if your heart should 'beet' with mine" as listed below. I particularly like the "Veggie Valentine" even though it's packed with puns it puts a smile on my face. Enjoy!
Will You Be Mine? Valentine, you make me silly; You make my heart beat willy-nilly; When I’m with you, the world is hazy; Valentine, you drive me crazy! Valentine, when we’re apart, My need for you goes off the chart. Will you be mine? Can I be thine? Say you’ll be my Valentine!

Veggie Valentine You may not “carrot” all for me The way I care for you You may “turnip” your nose When I plead with you But if your heart should “beet” with mine Forever “lettuce” hope There is no reason in the world Why we two “cantaloupe.”
