Love Sonnet XI by P. Neruda
I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
Longing by Matthew Arnold
Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

It Is Here by Harold Pinter
What sound was that?
I turn away, into the shaking room.
What was that sound that came in on the dark?
What is this maze of light it leaves us in?
What is this stance we take,
To turn away and then turn back?
What did we hear?
It was the breath we took when we first met.
Listen. It is here.
Defeated by Love by Rumi
The sky was lit
by the splendor of the moon
I fell to the ground
has made me sure
I am ready to forsake
this worldly life
to the magnificence
of your Being.
Love poem by Tyler Knott Gregson
I hope when you sleep
And I hope when you dream
You dream of me
Always For The First Time by André Breton,
That leaning over the precipice
Of the hopeless fusion of your presence and absence
I have found the secret
Of loving you
Always for the first time
Rondel of Merciless Beauty by Geoffrey Chaucer
Your two great eyes will slay me suddenly;
Their beauty shakes me who was once serene;
Straight through my heart the wound is quick and keen.
Love by Carol Ann Duffy
you’re where I stand, hearing the sea, crazy
for the shore, seeing the moon ache and fret
for the earth. When morning comes, the sun, ardent,
covers the trees in gold, you walk
out of the season, out of the light love reasons.

Dream Girl by Carl Sandburg
You will come, with your slim, expressive arms,
A poise of the head no sculptor has caught
And nuances spoken with shoulder and neck,
Your face in a pass-and-repass of moods
As many as skies in delicate change
Of cloud and blue and flimmering sun.
How Do I Love Thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
Your feet by Pablo Neruda
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

Again and again, even though we know love’s landscape by Rainer Maria Rilke
Again and again, even though we know love’s landscape
and the little churchyard with its lamenting names
and the terrible reticent gorge in which the others
end: again and again the two of us walk out together
under the ancient trees, lay ourselves down again and again
among the flowers, and look up into the sky.
Tu me manques by Natt Rozanska
Most days I miss you in English
On the worst I miss you in French,
You are missing from me
I am lacking in you
a vital part
as essential as air
A lost immune system
that can’t keep illness at bay,
There is no single word
that covers a lack of you,
I miss you out of language
But French is the closest,
tu me manques.
Love’s Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?
Now Sleeps The Crimson Petal by Alfred Tennyson
Now folds the lily all her sweetness up,
And slips into the bosom of the lake.
So fold thyself, my dearest, thou, and slip
Into my bosom and be lost in me.
I’m Nobody! Who are you? by Emily Dickinson
I’m Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there’s a pair of us!
Love Is… by Adrian Henry
Love is fish and chips on winter nights
Love is blankets full of strange delights
Love is when you don’t put out the light

If you forget me by Pablo Neruda
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

A conceit by Maya Angelou

When You Are Old by William Butler Yeats
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face.
Love poem by Christopher Poindexter
There is never
all the hearts
I wish to love
By Candlelight by Paul Holmes (haiku)
Yellow flame flickers
Shadows dance upon the wall
Love grows ever strong.

you’ll give me your most tender kiss
I’ll let you experience the love
you’ll let me experience the bliss.

Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Your laughter by Pablo Neruda
deny me bread, air,
but never your laughter
for I would die.

Me And Thee by Noor Fatima
Me and thee,
A cup of tea.
An unending sea.
Under a tree.
No one knows,
Away from cruelties,
Me and thee.
The Kiss by Thomas Moore
Give me, my love, that billing kiss
I taught you one delicious night,
When, turning epicures in bliss,
We tried inventions of delight.

in the sweet music of our particular heart.

As that I stood before.

And can return no more.

All the rivers sound
In my body, bells
Shake the sky,
And a hymn fills the world.

by only me is your doing, my darling)
Colours of Romance by Randy Batiquin
Hearts entwined with heav’nly bliss
spell the most romantic kiss
yearning for the sweetest place
nowhere less in your embrace.
Ask Not If Still I Love by Thomas Moore
Ask not if still I love,
Too plain these eyes have told thee;
Too well their tears must prove
How near and dear I hold thee.
The Fish Who Loved A Bird by Lycus
Come with me my love, and our fates we will cheat.
Come to this enchanted place where the sea and sky meet.
Who Said That Love Was Fire? by Patience Worth
Who said that love was fire?
I know that love is ash.
It is the thing which remains
When the fire is spent,
The holy essence of experience.
Come, And Be My Baby by Maya Angelou
The highway is full of big cars going nowhere fast
And folks is smoking anything that’ll burn
Some people wrap their lives around a cocktail glass
And you sit wondering
where you’re going to turn.
I got it.
Come. And be my baby.

This, and my heart, and all the fields—
And all the meadows wide—
Love poem by Christopher Poindexter
the day we met, we knew –
we were kindred souls.
people like us
only came around once
every blue moon
and I could not tell you
how dazzling it was
to know that for that night
the universe wore
the colour of indigo.
Love Sits On My Shoulder by Jac Judy A. Campbell
Love is growing with you and filling in the gaps.
Love is our tomorrows, our future, and our past.
Love binds the ties together and secures them with a knot.
Love is our plans that we outgrew and the ones that we forgot.
The Good-Morrow by John Donne
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.
Love Thee, Dearest? Love Thee? by Thomas Moore
Love thee, dearest? love thee?
Yes, by yonder star I swear,
Which thro’ tears above thee
Shines so sadly fair;
Tho’ often dim,
With tears, like him,
Like him my truth will shine,
And–love thee, dearest? love thee?
Yes, till death I’m thine.
Love One Another by Khalil Gibran
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

And life in me is what you give.
Lovely One by Pablo Neruda

When you sing or sleep,
When you suffer or dream,
When you are near or far,
You are mine, my lovely one,

All love letters are
They wouldn’t be love letters if they weren’t
Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms by Thomas Moore
Believe me, if all those endearing young charms,
Which I gaze on so fondly to-day,
Were to change by to-morrow, and fleet in my arms,
Like fairy-gifts, fading away!
Thou wouldst still be ador’d as this moment thou art,
Let thy loveliness fade as it will;
And, around the dear ruin, each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still!

We will, come to be.

The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;

I’m yours to keep and you are mine
we’re fin’lly home at last…

Love At First Sight by Danielle C. Thomas
True love can change a river’s course
Or pierce the strongest vault with ease.
True love can turn coal into gold
Or tame the tempest to a balmy breeze.
Sonnet XVII by Fernando Pessoa

My love for thee loves itself more than thee;
Ay, more than me, in whom it doth exist,
And makes me live that it may feed on me.
Yours by Daniel Hoffman

Blasted in a bleakness with no Spring.
Your love is the weather of my being.

She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron

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.
I Saw You by Joshua Henry Jones, Jr.
I saw you as I passed last night,
Framed in a sky of gold;
And through the sun’s fast paling light
You seemed a queen of old,
Whose smile was light to all the world
Against the crowding dark.
A Drinking Song by W.B. Yeats
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

And we two lovers shall not sit afar,
Critics of nature, but the joyous sea
Shall be our raiment, and the bearded star
Shoot arrows at our pleasure!
My beautiful flower by Allen Steble
You are my flower
you are my sweet soft petal
hand in hand
…in my hand
holding this precious gift
the blossom of your beauty
Don’t go far off by Pablo Neruda
Don’t leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.
Love by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Whatever stirs this mortal frame,
All are but ministers of Love,

As the tide wears the dove-grey sands

Is over, and February is over,
To sit in the starch of my shirt, and to dream of your sweet

Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

A wide Mississippi toward a feminine sea.

When I should be asleep to mine own voice
In telling thee how much thy love’s my dream,
I find me listening to myself, the noise
Of my words othered in my hearing them.
I loved you first: but afterwards your love by Christina Rossetti
With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done,
For one is both and both are one in love:
Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’
Both have the strength and both the length thereof,
Both of us, of the love which makes us one.
Lines Depicting Simple Happiness by Peter Gizzi
It feels right to be up this close in tight wind
It feels right to notice all the shiny things about you
The Quiet World by Jeffrey McDaniel

After that, we just sit on the line
and listen to each other breathe.
Another Valentine by Wendy Cope
Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic.
You know I’m yours and I know you are mine.
And saying that has made me feel romantic,
My dearest love, my darling valentine.

Love poem by Christopher Poindexter
and too much –
meet me there.
Heart to Heart by Rita Dove
It’s neither red
It doesn’t melt
or turn over,
break or harden,
so it can’t feel
It doesn’t have
a tip to spin on,
it isn’t even
just a thick clutch
I feel it inside
its cage sounding
a dull tattoo:
I want, I want—
but I can’t open it:
there’s no key.
I can’t wear it
on my sleeve,
or tell you from
the bottom of it
how I feel. Here,
it’s all yours, now—
but you’ll have
to take me,
Love by James Russell Lowell
Such is true Love, which steals into the heart
With feet as silent as the lightsome dawn
That kisses smooth the rough brows of the dark,
And hath its will through blissful gentleness

Sonnet XIX by Fernando Pessoa
Beauty and love let no one separate,
Whom exact Nature did to each other fit,
Giving to Beauty love as finishing fate
And to Love beauty as true colour of it.
Syntax by Carol Ann Duffy
Love’s language starts, stops, starts;
the right words flowing or clotting in the heart.
One Hundred Love Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda
I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain obscure things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
I Am Not Yours by Sara Teasdale
Oh plunge me deep in love – put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.
Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, Gladly Beyond by E.E. Cummings
somewhere i have never traveled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
Silvia by Sir George Etherege
Her mouth, from whence wit still obligingly flows,
Has the beautiful blush, and the smell, of the rose.
Love and Destiny both attend on her will;
She wounds with a look; with a frown, she can kill!

Sonnet XLIX by Pablo Neruda
The sky folds its wings over you,
lifting you, carrying you to my arms
with its punctual, mysterious courtesy.
That is why I sing to the day and to the moon,
to the sea, to time, to all the planets,
to your daily voice, to your nocturnal skin.
Love poem by Christopher Poindexter
I look at you
and I know love.
I look away
and I know nothing.
Echo by Carol Ann Duffy
I think I was searching for treasures or stones
in the clearest of pools
when your face…
when your face,
like the moon in a well
where I might wish…
might well wish
for the iced fire of your kiss;
To Celia by Ben Jonson
Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup,
And I’ll not look for wine.
My love by James Russell Lowell
She is a woman: one in whom
The springtime of her childish years
Hath never lost its fresh perfume,
Though knowing well that life hath room
For many blights and many tears.
Poem I wrote sitting across the table from you by Kevin Varrone
if I had two nickels to rub together
I would rub them together
like a kid rubs sticks together
until friction made combustion
and they burned
a hole in my pocket
into which I would put my hand
and then my arm
and eventually my whole self––
I would fold myself
into the hole in my pocket and disappear
into the pocket of myself, or at least my pants
but before I did
like some ancient star
I’d grab your hand
At last by Elizabeth Akers Allen
At last, when all the summer shine
That warmed life’s early hours is past,
Your loving fingers seek for mine
And hold them close at last at last!

Tie Your Heart At Night To Mine, Love, by Pablo Neruda
Tie your heart at night to mine, love,
and both will defeat the darkness
like twin drums beating in the forest
against the heavy wall of wet leaves.
Variations On The Word Love by Margaret Atwood
Then there’s the two
of us. This word
is far too short for us, it has only
four letters, too sparse
to fill those deep bare
vacuums between the stars
that press on us with their deafness.
Unending Love by Rabindranath Tagore
I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
