    Morning folks. Does anybody know a good valentines poem be it a funny limerick or romantic poem to use in a valentines card?Or a quote from history about love and life and happines. I usually make my girl a card and either write my own or put a romantic poem in it as it's more personal and she really does appreciate the effort that goes into them and I love making them for her. I also buy her one that I fill with loads of childish valentines poems and limericks and sayings, quotes etc. . . for a giggle ;-)

    So has anybody got any that we may not have heard, thankyou!

    Here's a fave of mine by Percy Shelley. *Loves Philisophy*

    The fountains mingle with the river
    And the rivers with the Ocean,
    The winds of Heaven mix for ever
    With a sweet emotion;
    Nothing in the world is single;
    All things by a law divine
    In one spirit meet and mingle.
    Why not I with thine? ---

    See the mountains kiss high Heaven
    And the waves clasp one another;
    No sister-flower would be forgiven
    If it disdained it's brother.
    And the sunlight clasps the earth
    And the moonbeams kiss the sea;
    What is all this sweet work worth
    If thou kiss not me?

    Good man! I post my OH letters and she loves getting a hand written letter as nobody does that nowadays really do they? but. . . .you can imagine the content of some of them (utter filth! lol) she would die of embarrasment if they were posted to the wrong address!

    That deserves a. . . . . .Oof!

    Probably not what you are looking for but thought I would share. Unfortunatly it wasn't written by me.

    Beautiful (insert name) I need some more,

    I want you here and down on my floor.

    Rub me,suck me, fuck me till I bleed,

    Do what you want, you are what I need!

    Slap me, swear at me, do as you crave,

    Just bend me over and make me your slave.

    Squat on my face and look into my eyes

    And tell me you have a tasty surprise!

    Fill up my mouth with your delicious cum,

    Don't stop for nothing, until you are numb.

    I want you all, from your mouth to your butt,

    Give me your body, just make me your slut!

    You are what I desire, and I want YOU!

    Make me your servant, you know what I'll do!

    No limits or boundaries, nothing to break,

    I'll give you my all and you can just take!

    Romantic, fast, hard or sleazy,

    Just give me a chance, for you I'm easy

    You know what I like and what I will do,

    But most of all I want it with you!

    I've told you everything, I have nothing left,

    Make my last words, your name on my breath!

    I know I ask a lot, but my heart is so true,

    All I want is to be with you!

    How about this little gem by the inimitable Roger McGough?

    ten milk bottles standing in the hall

    ten milk bottles up against the wall

    next door neighbour thinks we're dead

    hasn't heard a sound he said

    doesn't know we've been in bed

    the ten whole days since we were wed

    noone knows and noone sees

    we lovers doing as we please

    but people stop and point at these

    ten milk bottles a-turning into cheese

    ten milk bottles standing day and night

    ten different thicknesses and

    different shades of white

    persistent carolsingers without a note to utter

    silent carolsingers a-turning into butter

    now she's run out of passion

    and there's not much left in me

    so maybe we'll get up

    and make a cup of tea

    then people can stop wondering

    what they're waiting for

    those ten milk bottles a-queueing at our door

    those ten milk bottles a-queueing at our door

    annoyingly, you can't separate the stanzas on here but the breaks come after "wed", "cheese", and "butter"

    Or this one? Celia Celia, by Adrian Mitchell:

    When I am sad and weary

    And I think all hope is gone

    When I walk along High Holborn

    I think of you with nothing on.

    Wendy Cope's "Giving Up Smoking" is a particular favourite of mine:

    There's not a Shakespeare Sonnet

    Or a Beethoven quartet

    That's easier to like than you

    Or harder to forget.

    You think that sounds extravagant?

    I haven't finished yet -

    I like you more than I would like

    to have a cigarette.

    Wendy Cope again, this one is called "Valentine"

    My heart has made its mind up
    And I'm afraid it's you
    Whatever you've got lined up,
    My heart has made its mind up
    And if you can't be signed up
    This year, next year will do.
    My heart has made its mind up
    And I'm afraid it's you.

    This one is my favourite ever and what I will have at my wedding should I ever find someone who lives up to it! It's called The Confirmation, by Edwin Muir:

    Yes, yours, my love, is the right human face,
    I in my mind had waited for this long,
    Seeing the false and searching for the true,
    Then found you as a traveller finds a place
    Of welcome suddenly amid the wrong
    Valleys and rocks and twisting roads. But you,
    What shall I call you? A fountain in a waste,
    A well of water in a country dry,
    Or anything that’s honest and good, an eye
    That makes the whole world bright. Your open heart,
    Simple with giving, gives the primal deed,
    The first good world, the blossom, the blowing seed, T
    he hearth, the steadfast land, the wandering sea.
    Not beautiful or rare in every part.
    But like yourself, as they were meant to be.

    Hiya SS! Of course I'm interested girl. The Muir poem is lovely indeed. Here's one I like a lot, nice sentiment. Come Live With Me and Be My Love by Christopher Marlow. . . .(well known!)

    Come live with me and be my love,
    And we will all the pleasures prove
    That valleys, groves, hills, and fields,
    Woods or steepy mountain yields.

    And we will sit upon the rocks,
    Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks,
    By shallow rivers to whose falls
    Melodious birds sing madrigals.

    And I will make thee beds of roses
    And a thousand fragrant posies,
    A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
    Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;

    A gown made of the finest wool
    Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
    Fair lined slippers for the cold,
    With buckles of th purest gold;

    A belt of straw and ivy buds,
    With coral clasps and amber studs:
    And if these pleasures may thee move,
    Come live with me and be my love.

    The shepherds' swains shall dance and sing
    For thy delight each May morning:
    If these delights thy mind may move,
    Then live with me and be my love.

    I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of poetry. I have a few poems I like (The Listener and The Raven being my 2 favourites) but I tend to not like the flow. I like to hear them read by the poet though, I love Tim Minchin's poetry read allowed by himself.

    As for love poems

    The ones I like best are the ones WandA has written for me :) he is very good and he has the same issues as me with flow so the always sound pretty good :). He doesn't like to share his poetry though so I can't tell you them.

    My thing is love songs :) music is my obsession

    My favourite love song being mine and WandA's song - When I Need You sung by Luther Vandross (here's a snippet):

    When I need you
    I just close my eyes and I'm with you
    And all that I so want to give you
    Is only a heartbeat away
    When I need love
    I hold out my hand and I touch love
    I never knew there was so much love
    Keeping me warm night and day

    :) It makes me happy! WandA listens to a lot of MOBO music and sent me this right at the beginning of our long distance relationship - it will be played at our wedding :). I'll have a look for the Leo Sayer version, not sure if I've heard it :)

    Another favourite is Minni Riperton's Loving You...

    Loving you is easy cause you're beautiful
    Making love with you is all i wanna do
    Loving you is more than just a dream come true
    And everything that i do is out of loving you

    No one else can make me feel
    The colors that you bring
    Stay with me while we grow old

    And we will live each day in springtime
    Cause loving you has made my life so beautiful
    And every day my life is filled with loving you

    Loving you i see your soul come shining through
    And every time that we oooooh
    I'm more in love with you

    I know you didn't ask for songs hope you don't mind :P.
