Poems About Love - Love Poetry

This first poem beautifully describes how love is a sanctuary from the harshness of life.

Nightfall - Charles Towne

I need so much the quiet of your love,
After the day's loud strife;
I need your calm all other things above,
After the stress of life.

I crave the haven that in your dear heart lies,
After all toil is done;
I need the star shine of your heavenly eyes,
After the day's great sun!


The New Life - Dante

In that book which is
My memory...
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you,
Appear the words...
Here begins a new life.

ink - Emily Hart

you write your poetry in my heart
the sharp edges of the pen
a hypodermic
inking into my veins


- by Albert Schweitzer

Sometimes our light
goes out,
but is blown
into instant flame
by an encounter
another human being.

In this rueful poem about love, the poet longs to recall first meeting her lover - now when it is all too late.

I Wish I Could Remember - Christina Rossetti

I wish I could remember that first day,
First hour, first moment of your meeting me,
If bright or dim the season, it might be
Summer or Winter for aught I can say;
So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree
That would not blossom for many a May.
If only I could recollect it, such
A day of days! I let it come and go
As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean so little, meant so much;
If only now I could recall that touch,
First touch of hand in hand—Did one but know!


How Many Times? - Thomas Lovell Beddoes

How many times do I love thee, dear?
Tell me how many thoughts there be
In the atmosphere
Of a new-fall'n year,
Whose white and sable hours appear
The latest flake of Eternity—
So many times do I love thee, dear.

How many times do I love again?
Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unraveled from the tumbling main,
And threading the eye of a yellow star—
So many times do I love again.


Kick Under The Table - Edgar Guest - Poems About Love

A humorous, tongue-in-cheek, take on marriage. Watch your shins guys...

After a man has been married awhile,
And his wife has grown used to his manner and style,
When she knows from the twinkle that lights up his eye
The thoughts he is thinking, the wherefore and why,
And just what he'll say, and just what he'll do,
And is sure that he'll make a bad break ere he's through,
She has one little trick that she'll work when she's able—
She takes a sly kick at him under the table.

He may fancy the story he's telling is true,
Or he's doing the thing which is proper to do;
He may fancy he's holding his own with the rest,
The life of the party and right at his best,
When quickly he learns to his utter dismay,
That he mustn't say what he's just started to say.
He is stopped at the place where he hoped to begin,
By his wife, who has taken at kick at his shin.

If he picks the wrong fork for the salad, he knows,
That fact by the feel of his wife's slippered toes.
If he's started a bit of untellable news,
On the calf of his leg there is planted a bruise.
Oh, I wonder sometimes what would happen to me
If the wife were not seated just where she could be
On guard every minute to watch every trick,
And keep me in line all the time with her kick.


To Anthea - Robert Herrick - Poems About Love

A heart as soft, a heart as kind,
A heart as sound and free
As in the whole world thou canst find,
That heart I'll give to thee.

Thou art my life, my love, my heart,
The very eyes of me:
And hast command of every part
To live and die for thee.


I love her and that's the beginning of everything.

- F. Scott Fitzgerald


In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours.
In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.

- Maya Angelou
