Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

There they were, fifteen black valentine cards waiting to be filled with nice valentine poems. They were sitting on the kitchen table in a pile as high as Gilbert's nose. Mrs. Byrd had told them to write something nice for each classmate, because Valentine's Day was about liking each other.

Gilbert liked Patty a lot. She had smiley eyes and a silly laugh that made Gilbert feel silly, too. He picked out the biggest card and wrote inside:

Roses are red,
violets are blue.
Your eyes are nice,
and I like you.
Gilbert

Gilbert also liked Frank. Frank let Gilbert use his baseball mitt once when Gilbert forgot to bring his own. On Frank's card he wrote:

Your name is Frank.
It isn't Hank.
You lent me your mitt,
so you I thank.
Gilbert

This is fun, Gilbert thought. He continued to write nice valentine poems until there were two cards left. One for Lewis and one for Margaret.

Gilbert didn't want to write a nice poem for Lewis. Lewis once tweaked Gilbert's nose until it turned red.

He didn't want to write a nice poem for Margaret, either. Margaret made fun of Gilbert's glasses.

...So he didn't write nice poems.
