Description

Shakespeare brings us the universal definition of love in Sonnet 116. In this poem, Shakespeare tells us that even if we are clueless about love, we know where it is, and that’s all we need to know. He doesn’t speak of his personal experience on love but rather shares his understanding. Let me not to the marriage of true minds Text: Currently, texting is the most common communication method worldwide. So go ahead and send a poem by phone. Janice Gould’s work homes in on themes of love and connection, with strong links to her identity as a Maidu lesbian. In ‘Six Sonnets: Crossing the West’, Gould equates her lover to a dream, never running short on ethereal ways to describe her... and mourning when she slips away, even temporarily. 30. "For Keeps" by Joy Harjo Movement Song’ by Audre Lorde is about the end of a relationship. While the sorrow felt after the speaker’s heart has been broken is clear, the poem ultimately ends with hope that the pair can both have a new beginning — albeit apart. 39. "Camomile Tea" by Katherine Mansfield We might be fifty, we might be five, So snug, so compact, so wise are we! Under the kitchen-table leg My knee is pressing against his knee.

In ‘Sonnet 116’, Shakespeare talks about the permanence of love — even if the people change as time goes on, the love between them will remain true and strong, or else it isn’t love at all. 55. "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun" (Sonnet 130) by William Shakespeare I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground: And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare. This sonnet by Elizabeth Barrett Browning speaks of glorious love, of an intense crush, a great attraction. You can imagine how a girl gushes over the love of her life in every word of this poem. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. In ‘I Love You’, Ella Wheeler Wilcox lays out the tiny moments that add up to why the speaker feels so passionately about her love, before going on to describe the colder attributes she’s not looking for in a relationship. This juxtaposition helps to make the initial love she describes all the more special. 64. "We Have Not Long to Love" by Tennessee Williams

64. "We Have Not Long to Love" by Tennessee Williams

And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:

When people fall in love, the whole world suddenly shrinks into someone. They fall into a world where there are only two people: they and their lovers. Smiles, eyes and everything of lovers become special. Their emotions are also more sensitive. All of the senses have a greater intensity. Colors seem brighter, sounds more resonant and smells more powerful when you are in love. When you are with your lover, there is no greater feeling in the world. You start caring about each and every detail of that person. How they behave, the way they talk, their laugh, everything is just perfect for you. Additionally, while these love poems can be used to write down as a gift, might we suggest reading them aloud to your partner as well to express every bit of love that you have for them in words!

19. "Sthandwa sami (my beloved, isiZulu)" by Yrsa Daley-Ward

Falling in love can confuse you in many ways, but it is truly an awesome feeling. You are happier all day. Just the presence of that one person is enough to make your day. You feel more interested in talking about them, you can just talk hours, continuously about them. Even if you’re having a bad day, all you need is just a little conversation with that person. You always have that person on your mind, and every single little thing around you reminds you of them. You start daydreaming, you have many imaginary scenarios in your mind. Just think about them brings a huge smile on your face. And none but thou shalt be my paramour!" 26. "When I Too Long Have Looked Upon Your Face" by Edna St. Vincent Millay Each stanza of Langston Hughes’ ‘A Love Song for Lucinda’ compares love to a specific feeling, all of which are linked to the natural world. This poem emphasizes the exhilaration of falling in love and the all-encompassing enchantment that comes with it. 34. "Poem for My Love" by June Jordan Samuel Taylor Coleridge‘s “Love” might be quite lengthy, but it speaks of a daring courtship. All thoughts, all passions, all delights,

Love doesn’t have to be confined to romance — love between friends can be just as strong and beautiful. In ‘Love and Friendship’, Emily Brontë compares romantic love to a rose — stunning but short-lived — and friendship to a holly tree which can endure all seasons. 9. "To Be In Love" by Gwendolyn Brooks Rabindranath Tagore is a Bengali poet with the pen name Bhanu Singha Thakur. It isn’t hard to be swept off your feet as you read these sweet soulful words.Whatever the occasion or however the presentation, we have the perfect love poem for you. More Poems About Love: The words of 13th-century Persian poet Rumi have transcended national, ethnic, and religious divides for centuries. The passion and dedication in ‘Defeated by Love’ is apparent in each line, making this enduring testament to the power of love one of the most beautiful love poems on our list. 53. "Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? (Sonnet 18)" by William Shakespeare

The sparkling flirtation at the start of a new relationship is surely one of the most exciting parts of love. ‘Flirtation’ by Rita Dove eloquently captures this joy and anticipation, and is one of the most relatable poems about this aspect of love. 24. "Heart to Heart" by Rita Dove It’s neither red nor sweet. It doesn’t melt or turn over, break or harden, so it can’t feel pain, yearning, regret. Prolific poet Dorothea Lasky has written multiple collections and currently directs the poetry programme at Columbia University. In ‘Poem To An Unnameable Man’, she uses celestial imagery to explore a romantic relationship, describing her power and strength to the lover who underestimates her. 38. "Movement Song" by Audre LordeA Happening: Are you a confident theater kid (on the inside) who enjoys a spectacle? Then plan a big, choreographed to-do as you recite the poem; re-enact a scene from “Roxanne” or “Cyrano”; whatever you choose, go big! (Advice: Only do this if you’re sure the other person will be receptive and doesn’t mind the attention.) Similar to Browning, Robert Burns’ profound love is evident in his poem ‘A Red, Red Rose’. Burns declares this love to be both passionate and refreshing — with each comparison, we see that even the loveliest language pales next to the depth of Burns’ ‘Luve’. 12. "She Walks in Beauty" by Lord Byron She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. The poems in this collection include both classics and works by contemporary poets. With linking narratives that are upbeat, tongue-in-cheek, witty, and serious by turns, Daisy Goodwin guides the reader through the seminal points of becoming a fully-formed adult.
