Mother's Chocolate Valentine

When my children were growing up they had a favorite Valentine book.

"It's Valentine's Day"
Jack Prelutsky

This is a book full of silly little short stories put in poem form.
Here is one of their favorites.

"Mother's Chocolate Valentine"

I bought a box of chocolate hearts,
a present for my Mother,
they looked so good I tasted one, 
and then I tried another.

They both were so delicious,
 that I ate another four,
and then another couple,
and then half a dozen more.

I couldn't seem to stop myself, 
I nibbled on and on,
before I knew what happened,
all the chocolate hearts were gone.

I felt a little guilty, 
I was stuffed down to my socks,
I ate my Mother's Valentine ...
I hope she likes the box.
