Here’s a little something something I thought you might enjoy for Valentine’s Day. It’s a poem by 17th century clergyman and poet Robert Herrick. (Before you roll your eyes and yawn, don’t let his clergyman status fool you… his poems were a little obscene for the early 1600s.)
Delight in Disorder
By Robert Herrick
So show yourself a little love, and chill out about whatever you might be fussing about today. Let your hair down. Revel in a little wild civility.
You don’t have to be Barbie. You get to be you. My bet is that your certain someone will like it even more if you’re not perfectly put together.
