It’s that time of year when love is on everyone’s mind and I thought I’d throw together a little something of the romance variety.
First, I thought I’d remind you that the world’s first love poem ever written down was Sumerian, and dates back to 2025 BC.
I introduced this poem back in October, and thought it perfect to revisit for Valentine’s Day. I’ve also added a new link for you to read about it further. It is just lovely.
So forget all that violent history of Valentine’s Day madness from Ancient Rome being posted all over the internet and go back to a simpler time, when a ritual between a king and the goddess of love conjures up nothing but images of romance.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
