This message was spoken by Ginevra Weasley to a dwarf during Valentine's Day celebration in order to let him give the message to Harry Potter. Harry however was not fond of this and tried to run away from the dwarf, until he tripped and fell in a hallway and the dwarf began to sing, which led all students in the hall laugh. Draco Malfoy seemed to know the poem was from Ginny, and made a scathing remark aloud against her, which led Ginny to embarrassedly run away.
Behind the scenes
- This message appeared in the novel, but was omitted in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
- This song's melody can be heard in the PlayStation version of the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets video game.
- The Dwarf cupid's performance of the song can be heard in the American audiobook version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, narrated by Jim Dale.
- Despite the general belief that it was Ginny who sent it, and not Myrtle Warren, as she could not write, a fan asked J. K. Rowling if it was actually Ginny who sent the valentine. Rowling confirmed so, as well as noting it a "Ginny Weasley thing" and not a "Tom Riddle thing", as Ginny was possessed by the Horcrux in T. M. Riddle's Diary at the time.
