Featuring poems by Hafiz, Sara Teasdale, William Shakespeare & others.
What is love?
The question is asked by each of us but the answer remains elusive. Dictionaries summon up many words but none fulfill.
Love itself is often ethereal, felt but only seen in a glance, a look, a fleeting touch. Part of Love’s beauty is perhaps in the fact that the question never can be adequately answered; its ephemeral, a chimera of the heart and only felt.
Our own experiences are unique and personal to ourselves and of little help defining it for another.
Love is perhaps best expressed through poetry. As Plato said 2500 years ago “At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet”. Writing a love poem for ones’ partner is seen as the most romantic of gestures. It opens our hearts to another's. Lovers love.
Here, in this volume history’s greatest poets convey thoughts, feelings and sentiments of love to you in quick (or bite-size) conversations of verse that can slip into your day and your partner's heart.
