To My Valentine
In love and hope
These blossoms fair
I lay at your dear feet!
In the rose’s heart
You’ll find my secret, sweet!
Such a sweet little poem accompanied this vintage drawing of a gentleman presenting a bouquet of flowers to his lady love on Valentine’s Day. Dresses in what seems safe to assume is his best clothing, he dips his head and bows to his lady as he presents her with flowers and a sweet secret. If you need a romantic graphic for Valentine’s Day, this one might just be the answer to what you are searching for.
This February 10th, 1880 edition of Harper’s Young People had a number of wonderful drawings, including this one.
