So long ago and quite faraway

In the world that was then, not today

There lived a priest they called Valentine

He married couples most of the time.

But Claudius, great emperor he

Needed all young men for his army

Thus marriage was a forbidden joy

For many a Roman girl or boy.

Well Valentine refused to abate

And so he suffered that triple fate

Torture, stoning, beheading also

This was the way that he had to go

Oh sad for him twas too long ago

Who knew he’d become our great hero ?

There lived a man his  name was Paul

In Hebrew he was known as Saul

Though Tarsus was his native home

He traveled much, martyred in Rome.

Upon Damascus Road went he

To destroy Christianity

Twas on this trip none would forget

Christ had His death before they met !

“While on this road where do you go

Why do you persecute me so ?

My brightest light has made you blind

Three days you’ll spend to purpose find !”

Well Paul at last did true believe

And baptism he did receive

His Acts and Letters we all know

Because our bible tells us so !

Thirteenth Apostle that was he

Who wrote chapters abundantly

He lost his head to Roman  ax

His body rests entombed with Pax !
