Something sweet for Valentine's Day

And all her face was honey to my mouth,
And all her body pasture to mine eyes;
The long lithe arms and hotter hands than fire,
The quivering flanks, hair smelling of the south,
The bright light feet, the splendid supple thighs
And glittering eyelids of my soul’s desire.

From "Love and Sleep" by Algernon Charles Swinburne

Idylle, Léon Bonnat, 1890

Happy Valentine's Day. You are the only person I've said this to!

I hope the day was sweet to both of you. Things are lovely here, but I wouldn't mind being on a beach somewhere...
