St Valentine's Day (Poems)
It's Valentine's Day (by Jack Prelutsky)
It's Valentine's Day. And in the street
There's freezing rain, and slush, and sleet.
The wind is fierce. The skies are gray.
I don't think I'll go out today.
But here inside the weather's warm.
There is no trace of wind or storm.
And you just made the morning shine.
You said you'd be my Valentine.
I loved you once (Я вас любил А.С. Пушкин.)
Перевод на английский Олега Масленникова
I loved you once. My love for you, it may be,
Within this heart of mine is still aglow;
But let it not concern you any longer;
I would not have it pain you anymore.
I loved you once - so hopelessly, in silence,
By shyness now, then jealousy beset.
My love for you has been so true, so tender,
As God may grant, another's may prove yet.
Я Вас любил: любовь ещё, быть может,
В душе моей угасла не совсем;
Но пусть она Вас больше не тревожит;
Я не хочу печалить Вас ничем.
Я Вас любил безмолвно, безнадежно,
То робостью, то ревностью томим;
Я Вас любил так искренно, так нежно,
Как дай Вам Бог любимой быть другим.
Love is ... (by Greg Scelsa)
Love is ... a tender feeling,
Love is ... a way of being,
Love is ... just showing someone you care.
Love is ... helping with the dishes,
Love is ... feeding your pet fishes,
Love is ... just giving from your heart.
Love is so very simple,
It's not a mystery.
When you treat those around you
The very same way
You want them to treat you.
Love is ... your baby sister,
Love is ... playing with her,
Love is ... holding her when she cries.
Love is ... sharing your candy,
Love is ... being all that you can be,
Love is ... lending a helping hand When someone needs you.
Love is ...

Love is ...
For you and me.Oh! Love is the greatest thing in the world.
