"lonely as a cloud..."
on March 29, 2011
"Love Poem Collection" is a collection of classic love poems. It has a working table of contents, is well formatted and has lots of engaging poems. As soon as I started reading I recognized some of my favorite poems. Here are some I really enjoyed:
Christopher Marlowe's "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love"
Shakespeare's Sonnets (18, 46, 116, 130, 153)
Ben Johnson's "Song: To Celia"
Elizabeth Barrett Browning's "How Do I Love Thee"
William Wordsworth's "Daffodils"
I also came across lesser known poets and some poets I had never heard of. This book does also have quite a few poems by Emily Dickinson.
The topics include: sweet kisses, secrets, friendship love, passionate love, beauty, longing, loneliness, rejection, death and sorrow.
If you enjoy classic poems then you should love this collection.
