St Valentines Day Poetry

The Glow-worm

    Among all lovely things my Love had been;
    Had noticed well the stars, allflowers that grew
    About her home; but she had never seen
    A Glow-worm, never one, and this I knew.

    While riding near her home one stormy night
    A single glow-worm did I chance to espy;
    I gave a fervent welcome to the sight,
    And from my horse I leapt; great joy had I.

    Upon a leaf the glow-worm did I lay,
    To bear it with me through the stormy night:
    And, as before, it shone without dismay;
    Albeit putting forth a fainter light.

    When to the dwelling of my Love I came,
    I went into the orchard quietly;
    And left the glow-worm, blessing it by name,
    Laid safely by itself, beneath a tree.

    The whole next day, I hoped, and hoped with fear;
    At night the glow-worm shone beneath the tree;
    I led my Lucy to the spot, 'Look here,'
    Oh! joy it was for her, and joy for me!

    - William Wordsworth
