Valentine’s Day.

I Love You More Than Applesauce

by Jack Prelutsky

I love you more than applesauce,
Than peaches and a plum,
Than chocolate hearts,
And cherry tarts,
And berry bubble-gum.

I love you more than lemonade,
And seven-layer cake,
Than lollipops,
And candy drops,
And thick vanilla shake.

I love you more than marzipan,
Than marmalade on toast;
For I love pies
Of any size,

But I love you the most.


Do you want to let your mother, father, or loved one know how much you love them? 

If you answered YES, keep reading.
