Ten Poems about Love
This mini-anthology calls at every stop on love’s roller-coaster journey – from the first dizzy declarations of passion to the clear-eyed devotion of a couple in old age. There’s humour and warmth in the form of a battered straw hat that has come to symbolise what it means to be together for the long haul. These are poems that capture all the light and shade of love; poems to make you think and feel.
Poems by Fleur Adcock, John Ashbery, ee cummings, Tishani Doshi and others, selected and introduced by Lorraine Mariner, poet and librarian at the National Poetry Library in London

Interesting and enjoyable to read, check out the others in our online collection. As well as a beautifully illustrated greeting the booklets make an excellent introduction to the work of contemporary and historical poets.
