I Surrender My Heart and My Love for Thee

I Surrender My Heart and My Love for Thee
Although this postcard--with a postmark dated February 13, 1911--is intended to convey a patriotic sentiment, the idea of Cupid kneeling down and holding up what appears to be a still-steaming heart makes it feel too much like a sacrificial offering to me.

To My Valentine
To the banner above
I surrender with glee,
My heart and my love;
Dearest Sweetheart for thee.

An unusual one I would guess...combining patriotism with romantic affection.
