Love Poem
Wednesday 2nd May 2018 @ 3:08 pm

As often happens,

when preparing for a thing, 

something of old,

once found jumps afresh.

And sometimes you catch it,

and sometimes it catches you.

I am caught.

This is one of the most beautiful piece of love poetry ever written in English.

Thank you Carol Anne Duffy






I want to call you thou, the sound

of the shape of the start 

of a kiss – like this, thou

–and to say, after,

I love, thou, I love, thou I love, not

I love you.


Because I so do – as we say now – I want to say

thee, I adore, I adore thee,

and to know in my lips the syntax of love resides,

and to gaze in thine eyes.

Love’s language starts, stops, starts;

the right words flowing or clotting in the heart
