Captive Memories

" My Valentine is old and worn,




It's freshness lost, it's fragrance shorn;




But still it holds some little part


Of the warm love within my heart.




What matters if it's perfumed dress




Has lost it's pristine daintiness ;




The words, though old, are ever new

That bear the message, " I love you. "

  -  T. J. White ( Captive Memories ", 1897 )
