YOU left me, sweets, two legacies: Famous Love Poems by Avira N

"love is more thicker than forget

more thinner than recall

more seldom than a wave is wet

more frequent than to fail" (E E Cummings)

Love is always kind. It is enduring. It does not bear a grudge. Love always trusts. It is never selfish. It is unbound. It is hopeful. It always defends. However, love, as we all know, is a two-sided thing; with the joy comes the pain!

“The hottest love has the coldest end.” - Socrates



Whereas the joy of love comes as a swift flowing river, the pain when arrives, is always more intense, more unbearable, and sharper - the river of joy comes first and then follows the vast ocean of pain. Love and pain - these are the two powerful emotions that almost all of the classic poets have touched in their work.

A collection of sixty-one famous love poems of some of the most influential poets like Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, E E Cummings, Sara Teasdale, Amy Lowell, Robert Browning, John Clare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, "YOU left me, sweets, two legacies" is a collection to savour.

YOU left me, sweet, two legacies,— A legacy of love A Heavenly Father would content, Had He the offer of; You left me boundaries of pain Capacious as the sea, Between eternity and time, Your consciousness and me. “YOU left me, sweets, two legacies” is rumination on love, about love, and about Joy and pain associated with love. With all these brilliant poems popping in and out of my Ereader's pages, is there anyone as good as all these nineteenth century’s poets: Shelley, Dickinson, John Clare, Teasdale, Rossetti (Christina), Browning, Cummings, and many more, when it comes to writing love poems? I loved you first: but afterwards your love Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove. And there is more: it may not always be so; and i say that if your lips,which i have loved,should touch another’s,and your dear strong fingers clutch his heart,as mine in time not far away The poems, all of these, are extraordinary. The words pour out of the pages and create a vast set of emotions that burn the heart, stir the desire and anguish, and nostalgia, all at the same time. The collection is something to be relished, to be read again and again. And before I log off, another one of my favourites from the book: How is it that, being gone, you fill my days, And all the long nights are made glad by thee?

love is more thicker than forget more thinner than recall more seldom than a wave is wet more frequent than to fail it is most mad and moonly and less it shall unbe than all the sea which only is deeper than the sea That is how it starts – A reflection on two sides of love, the beginning of this collection of famous love poems “YOU left me, sweets, two legacies.” How wonderfully fitting, wouldn’t you say? Reading Buried Love, make you think how abruptly a relationship could end and change a life. It does not matter if you are young or old. Love, after all, never loses its meaning. Reading Emily Dickinson made me love her writing so much but so did Christina Rossetti and Sara Teasdale and every other poet. Once you read all fifty -one poems, you would find it hard to pick your favourite. That is how good the collection is – the author has picked best of the work of all the poets. IN the spring I asked the daisies If his words were true, And the clever, clear-eyed daisies [And the clever little daisies ] Always knew. If I were you, I would buy this book and read a poem a day. WHEN roses cease to bloom, dear, And violets are done, When bumble-bees in solemn flight Have passed beyond the sun, And it goes on… A gem of a book, a keeper!
