Happy Valentine’s Day! As a kid, this is the day I would sign thirty little cards to place in the decorated mailboxes at the desk of each of my classmates in elementary school. In high school, we would buy roses to have delivered by a member of the student council to your Valentine. Today, it is a day dedicated to saying and doing just the right things to the one you love.
In the spirit of doing the right thing and trying something new, I used Chatgpt to answer a question for me about Valentine’s Day AND write a poem. It’s Valentine’s Day for goodness’ sake, you must have a poem. At the same time, I wrote an answer to a related question and put is next to the AI generated answer. Both the AI and personal responses are written below. Can you tell which one is from AI and which one is from me? To help you answer this question, the poem was written by AI.

A Valentine’s Day Poem
Building a new home, brick by brick,
A foundation for love that will never stick.
A space for laughter, a place for peace,
With you by my side, what could be sweeter, at least?
The walls go up, the roof is set,
With each new addition, our love is met.
A home that’s ours, a place to grow,
A symbol of love, that will forever show.
So, on this Valentine’s Day, my heart is warm,
As we start a new life, on a brand new farm.
With love as the mortar, and trust as the glue,
Our new home is a testament, to the love I have for you.
