Love is a Circle

Love is a circle,
Round and round,
Love goes up,
And love comes down,
Love is on the inside,
Trying to get out,
Love is whirling and twirling about!

I Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient;
Love is kind and envies no one.
Love is never boastful,
nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish,
not quick to take offence.
Love keeps no score of wrongs;
does not gloat over other men's sins,
but delights in the truth.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and its endurance.
Love will never come to an end.

Wild Rose
Flower Poem
Illustrated by Elizabeth Gordon

Oh, have you seen sweet Briar Rose?
She wears the very dearest clothes,
A hat the sweetest ever seen,
And dainty frock all shades of green.
A FRIEND

A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact,
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart that goes
strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend.
Children of the Rainbow

Dancing, singing, let's join hands!
Every child understands
Each one's color is just right
To make our world all rainbow bright.
5 Little Valentines

Five little valentines were having a race
The first little valentine was frilly with lace.
The second little valentine had a funny face.
The third little valentine said, "I love you".
The fourth little valentine said, "I do too".
The fifth little valentine was sly as a fox.
He ran the fastest to the valentine box.

A Valentine

Frost flowers on the window glass,
Hopping chickadees that pass,
Bare old elms that bend and sway,
Pussy willows soft and gray.
Silver clouds across the sky,
Lacy snow flakes flitting by,
Icicles like fringe in line
That is outdoor's Valentine.

Somewhere Out There

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight
Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that dream somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishin' on the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true


IT'S A SMALL WORLD

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears,
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears,
There's so much that we share,
It is time we're aware.
It's a small small world.

It's a small world after all,
It's a small world after all,
There's so much that we share,
It is time we're aware.
It's a small small world.

There is just one moon and a golden sun,
And a smile means friendship to everyone,
Though the mountains are high,
And the oceans are wide,
It's a small small world.
