Valentine Cards by Judith Blakemore Lawton

Valentine Cards

Once a year,
Crafted with care,
Two Valentine cards
Just appear!

Every year,
Secretly sent,
To mystify me,
Their intent.

Year by Year,
Posted afar,
You endeavour to hide
Who you are.

Year on year,
From you, for me,
It’s nearly their golden

Again this year,
Writing askew,
The message is clear,
But who are you?
