Valentine's Day Poem

Valentine's Day will always be special to me because that is the day when my oldest son was born. After seventeen hours of labor, yes seventeen hours, he was finally ready to come into the world. My husband can never, in a million years, top this gift. So today we celebrate my sons 7th birthday along with Valentine's Day. When parents say time flies, they aren't kidding. I remember when my son was born and when he was a baby, and it doesn't seem like it was that long ago. Everyday I see his cute little face change. It is not the face of a baby anymore but a little man. An exact image of his father, whom I adore. My younger son is the same. I think both boys grow in their sleep because when they wake up it feels to me that their faces have thinned out, and they have gotten taller. Oh, the laments of a mother. We want them to grow up, just not so fast.

Today I am going to post a Valentine's Day poem that I was always fond of. I hope everyone enjoys.


by Robert Burns

O, my luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June;
O, my luve's like the melodie
That's sweetl play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands of life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile.

Breathtaking Bowhunts Review

In Breathtaking Bowhunts, the author Mike Lamade, experiences this collection of bowhunting adventures over a period of almost four decades. Mike takes you along as he stalks a huge bull moose in the Yukon and fights through a blizzard for a record book muley on the Colorado plains. Pope & Young whitetails will fall in Kansas, Illinois and Wyoming, and you'll wait with Mike in a ground blind in South Africa for elusive kudu, gemsbok, and wildebeest. In his 40 years of pursuing big game with his bow, Mike has hunted most of the United States and Canada and traveled to Africa eight times. Most of the stories in this collection have appeared in Bowhunter magazine. If you are an avid bowhunter you will enjoy reading about Mike on over 20 action-packed bowhunts as he looks for whitetail, mule deer, bear, moose, pronghorn, alligator and a wide range of African plains game. He provides specific details of each adventure and really gets the reader involved, feeling like they are almost alongside him on his adventure. His description and love for bowhunting is prevalent throughout the pages.
