I think it’s so cool that Oregon’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day. So that’s what I celebrate on February 14th! Here’s my poem combining Oregon’s 160th birthday and my singleness.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Roses are red, and for people with dates
Or for married couples or people with mates
So no entertaining romantic notions
Instead I celebrate Oregon’s mountains and oceans
Happy Birthday, Oregon! I’m celebrating you
So glad where I live, no feeling blue
You’ve given me lots in our beautiful state
I’m not even sad because of no mate
On this day I will think of all that I’ve done
In the great state of Oregon even though I am one
And laugh as I consider the lengths that I’ll go
To distract me from V Day and that I am solo!
Roses are red, chocolate tastes great
But today it’s Oregon, that I celebrate!
