For more, here's a Valentine's Day writing prompt I posted a few years ago.
The love poem that I read this morning to my husband? Wife by Ada Limon. Meanwhile, I'll be referencing another art form when I surprise our child with Star Wars Blue Milk on Friday morning. Happily, the movies have led to reading many related books, so we'll add a treat to the fun.
Happy Valentine's Day in every genre and color!
