    Wonderful Poems!

    These poems are worth owning and learning, even to be repeated to a lover. Interesting time-lines when these poems were wrote, and brilliantly placed together! I always re-read this handbook, even for memorization.

    Great Love Poems

    I'm a romantic at heart and loved these poems. You can literally sit and get lost in the imagery and emotion. A great read for any lover of poetry. Having written romantic poetry for thirty years, I know a good book when I see it.
