  • To My Valentine ~ Ogden Nash
    (prezi.com)
    Listen to it.
    "More than a catbird hates a cat,
    Or a criminal hates a clue,
    Or the Axis hates the United States,
    That's how much I love you.

    I love you more than a duck can swim,
    And more than a grapefruit squirts,
    I love you more than a gin rummy is a bore,
    And more than a toothache hurts..."

    Nothing in the world is single;
       All things by a law divine
    In one spirit meet and mingle.
       Why not I with thine?— ..."

    It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
    It promises light
    like the careful undressing of love..."


  • Shakespeare: Hamlet > Act IV, scene V (rhymezone.com)
