Gilbert's class is going to have a Valentine's Day party and Gilbert has a stack of cards that he needs to write a poem in for each of his classmates. A little girl in Gilbert's class, Patty, had caught his eye. He picked the biggest card and wrote her a nice poem:  "Roses are red, violets are blue. Your eyes are nice, and I like you."

Lewis and Margaret are also in Gilbert's class but he doesn't like them much. They have both either done or said hurtful things to Gilbert so he writes them mean poems. He writes to Lewis: "Violets are blue, roses are pink. Your feet are big, and they really stink." Margaret's card is also hurtful. Then he thinks that maybe they will be mean and hurtful to him again if he signs his name to the cards, so he signs Margaret's card with Lewis' name and Lewis' card with Margaret's name. As usual, when you do something wrong you get caught and Gilbert is no exception. Margaret and Lewis figure out what Gilbert has done and let the whole class know. Now the whole class is mad at Gilbert - even Patty!

Do things work out for Gilbert? Does the class forgive him for being mean?
