There are Roma women of all ages on the cards and some examples of inscriptions you will find on the cards are as follows:
To my valentine
In foreign lands with Gypsy bands,
I’ve wandered the whole world over,
But back to you,
With a heart that’s true,
I lay it at your door
I’d like to see you in my future valentine!
«It’s fate you are my valentine»
The Gypsy in me says that you are my valentine.
In my crystal ball I see just two sweethearts, you and me
“Let me tell your fortune dear,
The cards the truth will devine,
A heart so true,
says “I love you”, and calls you his valentine?
«Your fortune today reads, hearts Valentines in everything»
«To my valentine,
inside of this cup, there is a fortune for you,
Let this Gypsy read it,
she’ll tell you all that is true»
