Love On the 14th

Love on the 14th

The war in Korea rages on,

We are in a tiny cafe next to the Binnenhof in 

The Hague, Holland. It's a bit misty.

Joseph from behind the bar brought a pistacho.

The ashtray was pushed around by nervous fingers

Smoke was whipped by an old ceiling fan and

George Shearing notes. It set the sphere.

The time of  "Hello, Young Lovers.",

and "Getting To Know You."

"Do you think we stay together?"

She said, "Yes."

They played, "Kisses Sweeter than Wine."

It was February 14, 1951

St Valentine smiled down that Day in 1951.

I'll be her  VALENTINE and AD-MAN.

What did she do?


On display and sale this Sunday, Feb. 18th.

It bites the tail-end of winter, keeping you

safe and sound. Priced at 29.95 Cdn.

It makes a colourful, memorable Day for you

and Iris at 105 Britannia Road close to the

Mud Lake Entrance and Yacht Club.

Not Cafe WIM but..cozy place. What else?

Lumberjacks lived here. 1879.

Deep in the history of Canada.

Free viewing. 

Cafe WIM books still there.

Come over. Good stuff.

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
