The Valentine Box
 A Valentine’s Day Mystery Poem

The Valentine Box
      #1

Q:

                        #2
The Valentine's Social brought Billy and Liz
 together when they were just nine.
 He thought that her shoebox of string, tape and lace
 was "pretty" and cookies "just fine."
 Liz noticed how nimbly his fingers untied
 the shoelace that held the lid tight,
 and how, though the cookies were burnt to a crisp,
 he smiled as he ate the last bite.

                       #3
Now, poor Liz was from the wrong side of the tracks,
and all the school children did say
that Billy, born on the right side of the town,
was nice "`cause it's Valentine's Day."
Though the Social had brought them together that
once,
the social rules kept them apart,
and so they each went to their predestined life
with an empty place deep in their heart.

                           #4
   Now, Liz never married, but learned how to cook,
    and she started a catering biz
    that served meals at galas and opening nights,
    and everyone wanted Ms. Liz.
    She was booked for a book-launch -- Valentine's Day.
    The author had specified her.
    He was Edgar'd and feted -- a writer of note --
    so shy Liz was forced to concur.

   Liz set out the food as the writer read lines,
    then nimbly signed books for the crowd,
    but a puzzle it was, how this mystery man
    was making her heart beat so loud.
    She busied her hands with the lace and the silk,
    though they shook as she touched each part.
    She turned from the table as a voice in her ear
    whispered, "Liz, please be my sweetheart."

   He held in his two hands -- this mystery man --
    a box that was faded and worn,
    and when William Devane smiled at Liz once again
    she saw her young Billy reborn.
    It's a mystery to some how Billy and Liz
    found each other in this strange way,
