Heart to Heart

Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching and if you are running out of ideas, why not try writing a love poem?

Here are some titles for inspiration.

Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair by Pablo Neruda is a collection originally published in 1924. It has been translated into English by W.S. Merwin.

Dizzy in Love is a collection of poems by teens. Who knows the angst of love better than teenagers?

Aimless Love New and Selected Poems by Billy Collins is a compilation of new and selected poems from four previous books. Collins is a two term Poet Laureate.

Of course, you can go traditional with these works.

The Sonnets - Poems of Love by William Shakespeare.  You can't go wrong with Shakespeare. 

Burns:poems by Robert Burns contains the classic "A Red, Red Rose".

Give poems a try!
