‘Twas The Night Before Valentine’s Day

‘Twas the night before Valentine’s Day, and all through the house
The children were working, even the mouse

They went no place
And made valentines with paper, glitter and lace.

They made ones with faces and hearts
Sugar and spice and sugar sprinkled candy darts

There were bags with candy and treats
Lollipops, gumdrops, stamps, and tweets.

It was Valentine’s Day, and kids went to school
Kids were hungry and happy and started to drool

They played funny games, and won cool toys
And girls ran away from kissy face boys

There were heart shaped ice cubes in fruit punch
And they had snacks to munch and munch

They started to dine
And had a good time

The art teacher, Miss Riley, painted kids’ faces
With hearts and nice faces

There were valentines with red, pink, and white
All the colors were very bright

Then someone knocked on the door with a big sound
There were flowers, but everyone knew it was Mr. McHound

Then the principal came in with a small box
There was a hamster as small as a baby fox

Surprise! Happy Valentine’s Day!
