Valentine's Day Poem from the Paaaaaaast

Valentine's Day is my birthday, and we had family to the house today for cake and coffee. Mom read a poem she found that I wrote when I was 7, almost 8. I was in second grade at Clemmons School (Clemmons, NC) my one childhood year I spent away from Auburn.

Of course, I've scanned it and embedded the images of both pages on this blog post below.

I have no memory whatsoever of writing this, but I have to agree with Ms. Atwood's underlined "Good" and "A" grade, because what is art without its critics. And look how nice the cursive was! Here's the poem...
Valentine's Day 
A cupid, a heart, and a dove
And a sweet little message of love —
Oh, that's what I got
For the one who alot
Of this day I have spent thinking "ove"
I feel flippy,
I feel fizzy,
I feel whoopy,
I feel whizzy.
I feel wonderful.
Im feeling just fine.
Because you just gave me,
A valentine.
Don't give me any wine,
Don't rub your hand down my spine,
Come on be tough.
Don't do all that stuff —
Just be my valentine. 
Awesome job, 7-year-old Patrick.
