V is for Valentine.

Roses are pretty and chocolate is sweet,
but Buddy's book review just can't be beat.
So sit right down and kick up your feet,
Books on Valentine is your treat.

When she realized no one was upset that she was late in delivering the cards. She vowed to express her love throughout the year.
