Ah, young love. Who doesn’t remember the roller coaster of emotions, the shy glances, and the love notes associated with one’s first crush? In honor of February 14, here’s a poem which was published in the Pepper Box c, 1919, a publication of the Pine Hill Divinity Hall residence. You can’t help but feel sorry for poor Jimmy. This not exactly the type of poem that you would find written in a Valentine’s Day card but it certainly sums up the craziness that is love. Happy Valentine’s Day!
