Some Romantic Poems


"Love does not consist in gazing at each-other
but in looking together in the same direction."
~by Antoine de Saint-Exupery~

"Love is a fruit in season at all times,and within the reach of every hand."
~By Mother Teresa~

"Love like paint,
can make things beautiful
when you spread it,
but it simply dries up
when you don't use it."
~Author Unknown~

"The rose speaks of love silently,in a language known only to the heart."
~Author Unknown~

"The sound of a kiss is not so loud as a cannon,
but it's echo lasts a great deal longer."
~Author Unknown~
"Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing
while she mops up the floor
after her husband has walked
across it in his barn boots."
~By Hoosier Farmer~

"Let us have love and more love;
a love that melts all opposition,
a love that conquers all foes,
a love that sweeps away all barriers,
a love that aboundeth in charity,
a large-heartedness,
forgiveness and noble striving,
a love that triumphs over all obstacles."
~By Abdul Baha ( 1844-1921)~

"I Heard Him Say"
Accept the things to which fate binds you,
and love the people with whom fate brings you together,
but do so with all your heart."
~Unknown Author~

"Love: It is the greatest thing that God can give us,
for God himself is love.
Love is the greatest thing we can give to God,
for it will also give ourselves,
and carry with it all that is ours."
~By Jeremy Taylor~

I hadn't seen these romantic poems before! Don't know how I could miss them! Thanks for sharing: I love poems...
My favourite has to be the one in which a woman says that when she's old, she'll wear purple and a red hat, and all sorts of funny things. We studied it in class the year of the baccalauréat... Unfortunately, I can't remember the author or the rest of it...
I hope you're doing OK without your DH. Thinking of you. How long left?
Lots of hugs, dear Ali!
