It's time for another Valentiny contest hosted by Susanna Leonard Hill! This year's theme was "pride", and as usual, entries should have kid appeal and adhere to the word count limits. (214, in this case.)
An excerpt of my entry is below! Be sure to visit the contest page where you can read all entries in the comment section.

Peacocks lookin’ fancy! (Gasp!)
Peacocks lookin’ fine! (Oh my!)
Tonight’s the night they'll strut their stuff
and score a Valentine! (Aww!)
The ballroom is aflutter.
The party’s at its peak.
But Percy watches all the others
chatting cheek to beak.
