The Best Love Poems

My search for beautiful love poetry took me to a small book exchange in Yeppoon, called The Yellow Door, where I found a dusty old anthology of verse titled Mainly Modern, with poems selected by John and Dorothy Colmer and first published in 1969.

In it, I found two of the most beautiful romantic love poems I've read in a while... The first poem is titled,


Love Poems

Sometimes she is like sherry, like the sun through a vessel of glass,
Like light through an oriel window in a room of yellow wood;
Sometimes she is the colour of lions, of sand in the fire of noon,
Sometimes as bruised with shadows as the afternoon.

Sometimes she moves like rivers, sometimes like trees;
Or tranced and fixed like South Pole silences;
Sometimes she is beauty, sometimes fury, sometimes neither,
Sometimes nothing, drained of meaning, null as water.

Sometimes, when she makes me pea-soup or plays me Schumann,
I love her one way; sometimes I love her another
More disturbing way when she opens her mouth in the dark;
Sometimes I like her with camellias, sometimes with a parsley-stalk,
Sometimes I like her swimming in a mirror on the wall;
Sometimes I don't like her at all.

~ Kenneth Siessor

I was also delighted to find the following Robert Graves poem celebrating enduring love:

The Starred Coverlet

A difficult achievement for true lovers
Is to lie mute, without embrace or kiss,
Without a rustle or a sigh,
Basking in the other's glory.

Let us not undervalue lips or arms
As reassurance of constancy,
Or speech as necessary communication
When troubled hearts go groping through the dusk;

Yet lovers who have learned this last refinement -
To lie apart, yet sleep and dream together
Motionless under their starred coverlet -
Crown love with wreaths of myrtle.

~ Robert Graves
