Computerized Valentine

February 14, 1994|By Jane Tinsley Swope

Love can be sent with roses, candy,

Balloons, if you would take the risk.

All I ask is -- do not send me

Ballads on a floppy disk.

Love's not meant to be recorded

On an answering machine,

Nor will such a modern lover

Find the answer to his dream.

Valentines were made of ribbon,

Colored paper bits and lace.

Best of all, the quaint old custom

Of a heart-to-heart embrace.

So keep your modems in the basement.

A business deal they may enhance.

Bring harpsichords beneath my casement.

I'm a girl who likes romance.
