VALENTINE’S DAY LOVE POETRY – “i carry your heart” by e.e.cummings
‘i carry your heart’ by E.E. Cummings
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
VALENTINE’S DAY LOVE POETRY – “A WHITE ROSE” by JB O’Reilly
“A White Rose” by JB O’Reilly
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.
VALENTINE’S DAY LOVE POETRY – “To Be One With Each Other” by George Eliot
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together
to strengthen each other in labour,
to minister to each other in sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?

VALENTINE’S DAY LOVE POETRY – Peaches, Strawberries and Pears, Pick Me by Lynda Gray
Is she vexed?
And tired withered eyes,
and staring blindly,
and peaceful and
content and full of
things to come,
In old treasure chests,
and through a moonface,
in a burning flame
and a face not
yet touched, and
Jackets and Dresses
With a still thoughtless
mind and fragile
Speeches and Peaches
And Pears, Pick
