Sonnet: Today Is Valentine’s Day 2004 (My Birthday)
Today is Valentine’s Day naught, naught four!
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
A day when lovers world-over may greet;
A day to express love/affection more;
A day for friends to exchange gifts and meet.
What can be more precious than love on earth?
Yet, without love, there can be never bliss;
And love in modern world is quite a dearth;
Yet, love is one thing that oft eludes us!
When love is foremost in the hearts of men:
And love is punishment to even foes,
How much more love, profound comes from H2eaven?
Love’s weapon is the answer to our woes!
This is the love-message, a Bard can give,
Let people heed, mend lives and better live!
