Alternative Love Poems

Here is a small selection of alternative love poems, with a preponderance of sonnets, but absolutely no onions. More loving and mortal self-doubt can be found in my anthology of 100 rose poems: Centifolia.

Love Poems

A suggestive sonnet from John Updike…
Updike
It reminds me a bit of that mention of a poet in Stranger in a Strange Land who wrote a book of poetry entirely in punctuation. :)

One to send your valentine if you’ve just had a tiff; my favourite sonnet from my favourite contemporary poet.
A.E. Stallings

One for the lovers of sophistry:
R.S. Thomas

One for a little self-indulgent self-pity…
Millay

And one to just be in love with everything…
Billy Collins

P.S. If words fail, music will surely prevail…
