  1. Love Sonnet XI by P. Neruda

I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

  1. 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.

this worldly life

and surrender

to the magnificence

of your Being.

  1. Love by Carol Ann Duffy

you’re where I stand, hearing the sea, crazy

covers the trees in gold, you walk 

towards me,

out of the season, out of the light love reasons.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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

as bones

as blood,

A lost immune system

that can’t keep illness at bay,

an amputation,

a lobotomy.

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.

  1. If you forget me by Pablo Neruda

But

if each day,

each hour,

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.

  1. 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.

It doesn’t have 

a tip to spin on,

it isn’t even

shapely—

just a thick clutch

of muscle,

lopsided,

mute. Still,

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,

too.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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;

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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

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,

and both will defeat the darkness

like twin drums beating in the forest

against the heavy wall of wet leaves.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Love poem by Christopher Poindexter

I loved her

not for the way 

she danced 

with my angels

but for the way

the sound of

her name

could silence

my demons.
