Valentines Dag: Romantik og roser, men det er tanken, der tæller

Øvrige emner | 14. februar 2017

Det er Valentins dag. Roser og millioner af kort flyver rundt i hele verden mellem forelskede par.

Vi starter med et digt, som de færreste kender, men som rummer det hele...og så fortsætter vores hårdtprøvede politiske kommentator Mads Qvortrup i sporet på oprindelsen.

Valentine's Day-digtet af  Wendy Cope, After Lunch:

 On Waterloo Bridge, where we said our goodbyes,

 the weather conditions bring tears to my eyes.

 I wipe them away with a black woolly glove

 And try not to notice I've fallen in love.

 

 On Waterloo Bridge I am trying to think:

 This is nothing. you're high on the charm and the drink.

 But the juke-box inside me is playing a song

 That says something different. And when was it wrong?

 

 On Waterloo Bridge with the wind in my hair

 I am tempted to skip. You're a fool. I don't care.

 the head does its best but the heart is the boss-

 I admit it before I am halfway across.
