I have been doing a little light research on the history of Valentines Day for a future post. But I figured being that I didn't post anything for today I would share this verse with you.
The book I got it from did not list an origin, other than an old Valentine. (Edit..I found a picture of it!!)
Haste thee with this Valentine,
Thou silly man of letters,
And try to do the best you can
To serve,and please your betters,
For I'd sooner live an old maid
Or else give up the ghost,
Than wed a grinning postman
as stupid as a post.
Interesting huh? It was meant for the postman to read. What do you think he thought when he saw it?
