MY VALENTINE
by Michael Sage

My Love, My Valentine, My Wife
How special the day you miraculously walked into my life
Sliced open my heart, as if, with a butter knife
Then soothed my soul, and stroked away the strife

My Love, you are my spouse, my partner and very best mate
You still make me catch my breath, and make my lungs inflate
Every time when I look at you, it’s with an increased heart rate
I am so grateful for your love which you gave me, on a golden plate

My love for you seems to grow stronger, with each passing day
I admire your beauty, your strength, and the humility you portray
You are my true love, I know, you’re my perfect bouquet
That I’ll love you forever is something I hope for, and to God do pray

SHALL I COMPARE THEE TO A SUMMER'S DAY 

(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: 

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, 

And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; 

And every fair from fair sometime declines, 

By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd; 

But thy eternal summer shall not fade 

Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; 

Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, 

When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, 

So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

IS IT TOO LATE TO TOUCH YOU, DEAR? 

by Emily Dickinson 


Is it too late to touch you, Dear? 

We this moment knew -- 

Love Marine and Love terrene -- 

Love celestial too --

SOMEWHERE I HAVE NEVER TRAVELLED 

by E. E. Cummings

 

somewhere i have never travelled, 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

your slightest look easily will unclose me 

though i have closed myself as fingers, 

you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens 

(touching skillfully, mysteriously) her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and 

my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly, 

as when the heart of this flower imagines 

the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals 

the power of your intense fragility: whose texture 

compels me with the colour of its countries, 

rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes 

and opens; only something in me understands 

the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses) 

nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

SOMETIMES WITH ONE I LOVE 

by Walt Whitman


SOMETIMES with one I love, I fill myself with rage, for fear I effuse unreturn'd love; 

But now I think there is no unreturn'd love-the pay is certain, one way or another; 

(I loved a certain person ardently, and my love was not return'd; 

Yet out of that, I have written these songs.)

O MISTRESS MINE

By William Shakespeare


O Mistress mine, where are you roaming? 

O, stay and hear; your true love's coming, 

That can sing both high and low: 

Trip no further, pretty sweeting; 

Journeys end in lovers meeting, 

Every wise man's son doth know. 

What is love? 'Tis not hereafter; 

Present mirth hath present laughter; 

What's to come is still unsure: 

In delay there lies not plenty; 

Then, come kiss me, sweet and twenty, 

Youth's a stuff will not endure.

TO EARTHWARD 

by Robert Frost 


Love at the lips was touch 

As sweet as I could bear; 

And once that seemed too much; 

I lived on air

That crossed me from sweet things, 

The flow of - was it musk 

From hidden grapevine springs 

Down hill at dusk?

I had the swirl and ache 

From sprays of honeysuckle 

That when they're gathered shake 

Dew on the knuckle.

I craved strong sweets, but those 

Seemed strong when I was young; 

The petal of the rose 

It was that stung.

Now no joy but lacks salt 

That is not dashed with pain 

And weariness and fault; 

I crave the stain

Of tears, the aftermark 

Of almost too much love, 

The sweet of bitter bark 

And burning clove.

When stiff and sore and scarred 

I take away my hand 

From leaning on it hard 

In grass and sand,

The hurt is not enough: 

I long for weight and strength 

To feel the earth as rough 

To all my length.

TO MY DEAR AND LOVING HUSBAND 

by Anne Bradstreet


If ever two were one, then surely we. 

If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee; 

If ever wife was happy in a man, 

Compare with me ye women if you can. 

I prize thy love more then whole Mines of gold, 

Or all the riches that the East doth hold. 

My love is such that Rivers cannot quench, 

Nor ought but love from thee, give recompence. 

Thy love is such I can no way repay, 

The heavens reward thee manifold I pray. 

Then while we live, in love let's so persever, 

That when we live no more, we may live ever.

LOVE

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

 

And in Life's noisiest hour, 

There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee, 

The heart's Self-solace and soliloquy. 

You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ; 

And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart 

Thro' all my Being, thro' my pulse's beat ; 

You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light, 

Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve 

On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake. 

And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you, 

How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love

LOVE'S PHILOSOPHY 

by Percy Bysshe Shelley


The fountains mingle with the river,

And the rivers with the ocean;

The winds of heaven mix forever

With a sweet emotion;

Nothing in the world is single;

All things by a law divine

In another's being mingle--

Why not I with thine?


See, the mountains kiss high heaven,

And the waves clasp one another;

No sister flower could be forgiven

If it disdained its brother;

And the sunlight clasps the earth,

And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--

What are all these kissings worth,

If thou kiss not me?
