I fell in love with a boy who gave me this Yeats' poem:

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

I love Tchaikovsky--my favorite composer. An interesting choice for a favorite opera however. I can't say I remember what his sounds like. Man, he was so misunderstood in his time.

Here's a wish for you...

Bring your books and your music, pull the rocking chair closer to the woodstove, and I'll brew a cup of Earl Grey...

You have the perfect Valentine's day attitude, my dear. Pamper yourself, why wait for others to shower you with splendors when you yourself can do a much better job!

Happy Valentine's Day!
