A Valentine Poem From EECummings First Part


A Valentine Poem From EECummings to Share Part One


somewhere I have never travelled, gladly beyond any experience, your eyes have their silence:


in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me, or which i cannottouch because theyare too near.


your slightest look easily will unclose me


though i have closed myself as fingers,


you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens


(touching skillfully, mysteriously) her first rose.


Please leave poems, links or comments about poetry of the heart or your day of the heart Valentines' Day.

All Year Valentine

Let's hope love is not limited
to the month of February
just focused on Valentine's Day
like some lovers obituary

If one loves show it all year
make each day a thrill
let them know you're true
and live it like it's real

Whats a dozen roses
or a box of candied sweets
if your heart fails to say
you're my everyday treats

Recall important dates
anniversaries, birthdays too
will bring out the best
and return more love to you

I say show your love daily
not just on Valentine's Day
let them know you love them
then treat them just that way.

Del Cano

Tho I might sound a bit cynical in not minding a day for your special love I tend to make a concerted effort to let my love know daily she is special. I have been called nuts and an array of other names by those who are not now still with the one they were when those remarks were made. My Valentine and I just keep rolling on.
Blessings and love to all

sweet and introspective. his words are very gentle and the metaphors are soft and beautiful. e e cummings is like a cup of hot tea after dinner. bea
