It can be tough to tell your friend or loved one exactly how you feel on Valentine’s Day. How do you put “I love everything about you except your mustache” or “despite your basketball addiction and pet rabbit, I think you’re the greatest” into words? Wordsmith and copywriter Shannon Hollsten put our employees’ feelings into poems.
Feel free to second that emotion. If you’ve got the notion.
LOVE LIMERICK TO EVAN #1 (from Adrienne)
We have a love that’s really first rate.
Everything about us feels like fate.
Although if you were to ask
I’d say I hate your mustache
But everything else is pretty darn great.
LOVE POEM TO MIKE #2 (from Erika)
If our love was creature
It would for sure be a bear
Or a puma. Or tiger.
Or a lion in its lair.
Or maybe a Squirrel
Or a cute baby owl.
Any of those really,
But DEF not a fowl.
The point that I’m making
Is that I love you a ton.
And with that mushy line,
This poem is done.
LOVE LIMERICK TO TRAVIS #2 (from Karen)
I fell in love with a smart Engineer.
How that happened is sort of unclear.
You own a pet that’s a rabbit
And have an NBA habit
But this feeling of love just won’t disappear.
