Happy Valentine's Day!

Muse, bid the Morn awake!
Sad Winter now declines,
Each bird doth choose a mate;
This day's Saint Valentine's.
Michael Drayton, To His Valentine.

Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, 
Love, thou art every day my Valentine!
Thomas Hood, For the Fourteenth of February.

To-morrow is Saint Valentine's day,
All in the morning betime.
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
Shakespeare, Hamlet. Act iv, sc. 5, 1.48.

I claim there ain't Another Saint 
As great as Valentine.
Ogden Nash, I Always Say a Good Saint is No Worse than a Bad Cold.
