Your Editor found the Space Alien hard at work in the overwhelmingly busy Editorial Offices of the Space Alien Gazette.
"What are you working on?" she asked.
"Have you forgotten?" exclaimed the Space Alien. "Valentine's Day is here and I've written a poem for the occasion!"
"Let's see it!" said Your Editor. "I know you were most impressed with our Presidential Inaugural Poet, our very first National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman."
"Yes," said the Space Alien, now blushing shyly. "I watched her on Inauguration Day, January 20, and she took my breath away! She is a superb poet, and the youngest poet ever to read at a Presidential Inauguration!"
"I would love to meet her," continued the Space Alien, "and I hope she might like my work! Perhaps she could even give me some advice! She has been a true inspiration for me!"
"You chose a fine role model," agreed Your Editor, "so let's see how you are doing with your Valentine poem!"
The Space Alien handed Your Editor a sheet of paper with these words:
For my Space Alien Valentine:
Your Editor spent a moment in silent reflection before she spoke, as the Space Alien gazed at her questioningly.
"This is a beautiful poem!" she exclaimed. "It touches my heart, and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated!"
So, dear Loyal Readers, all of us here at the unbelievably busy offices of the Space Alien Gazette offer you this original work of our very own Space Alien, with our warmest wishes for St. Valentine's Day, 2021!
