As we think about famous love poems for Valentine’s Day, a few poets come to mind. Anne Sexton’s love poems has some of my favorite lines.
In Sexton’s ‘For My Lover, Returning To His Wife,’
I recall this:
“Fireworks in the dull middle of February
and as real as a cast-iron pot.
Let’s face it, I have been momentary…. She is solid.
As for me, I am a watercolor.
I wash off.”
And another from Sexton: “I like you. Your eyes are full of language.” (from a letter she wrote in 1964). As you search for the right words to say to the ones you love, check out a book of love poems for inspiration.
