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 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.
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.
