Valentine Chocolates

Valentine Chocolates

Ordinary candy,
Perhaps -- but
Boxed in a ruby
Heart, it grows
Exotic, mysterious;
Not to mention
The red cellophane
Wrapper, which
Looked through,
Shows a marvelous
Scarlet world.

~ Valerie Worth

I don't know about you, but I love those chocolate candies that come in heart shaped boxes. :)  My parents used to give small boxes of them to my sister and me every Valentine's Day, and I remember doing just what Worth talks about in her poem -- looking through the cellophane wrapper at a scarlet world.

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
