Les Liasons De l' Amour Valentine's Day Fete and a Giveaway

Sit down my dear, and a tale I will tell...

Long ago in a far away place,
There lived a young woman, fair of face.

She lived in a house that was lovely and grand,
No other compared in all the land.

It was surrounded by gardens, in which she would dance,
But, the woman was lonely, and longed for romance.

Hoping to find the man of her dreams,
She hosted a fete fit for kings and queens.

As the house filled with guests, music wafted about,
She felt sure he would come, she was feeling no doubt.

And as sweet music played, filling each room,
Thoughts of romance made the young woman swoon.

Then, just when her heart filled with sadness and gloom,
The most handsome young man walked into the room.

He was stately and strong, with eyes of dark grey,
And when their eyes met, they could not turn away.

The rest of the evening, they spent side by side,
And the lovely young woman dreamed of being his bride.

They talked and danced, and held each other tight,
And her eyes welled with tears, at the end of the night.

For she knew in her heart that the handsome young man......
