Cupid's Arrow

Happy Valentine's Day!

I suppose Venus would approve of  her little worker Cupid's marksmanship. The heart had been pierced straight through the middle! Some curly haired school girl had captured a school boy's attention. With jackknife in hand a lasting testimony was carved by his hands; while hoping she would reward his effort with a smile!

Found this carved on an old wooden school desk for two. The desk was in a one room schoolhouse that had been closed in 1936!
