  1. Love Is
    Poet: John Gay


    Love is a sudden blaze, which soon decays;
    Friendship is like the sun's eternal rays;
    Not daily benefits exhaust the flame;
    It still is giving, and still burns the same.



  2. Be Not Discouraged
    Poet: Henry Reed Conant


    When the clouds hang darkly o’er thee,
    Be thou not discouraged:
    When the world looks drear before thee,
    Be thou not discouraged:
    Let thy heart be light and gay;
    Soon the clouds will pass away:
    ’Tis darkest just before the day;
    Be thou not discouraged.



  3. Love Isn’t Far
    Poet:  Julie Hebert, © 2012


    Love is kind and can be mine.
    If I allow it so.
    I’ll find the guy, and make him mine,
    He’ll be my loving beau.

    We’ll go on trips and take some dips,
    And love forever more.
    My favourite thing, about him
    Will be his sleeping snore.

    Okay maybe the snore will be a bore,
    But there will still be lots I’ll love.
    His bright brown eyes and mind so wise,
    Him I’ll never want to get rid of.

    So till the day I meet this man,
    I’ll dream he’s on his way.
    And on that day life will be gay,
    He’ll be everything I prayed.



  4. A Broken Heart
    Poet: K. Summers, © 2010


    My heart was broke
    When you said you were going away
    I loved you so much
    But you did not care
    You felt you had to go
    But little did I know
    The best of life
    was just to begin.



  5. The Tender Passion
    Poet: John Imrie


    Love had set my heart on fire,
    And tuned me to devotion,
    I could the fairest face admire
    Without the least emotion:
    I felt as free
    As wind or sea,
    Each day was full of gladness;
    But when at last
    Love's die was cast,
    My joy was ting'd with sadness!

    For only when my love was near
    I felt the sun was shining,
    Love's presence is a foe to fear
    When hearts are intertwining!
    A world of bliss
    Was in each kiss,
    They set our hearts a-singing;
    When call'd to part
    Sad was each heart,
    True lover's fears up-bringing!

    At last to ease my heart's deep pain
    I made a fair confession,
    And kiss'd her o'er and o'er again, -
    Reward for Love's concession:
    We now are one
    Still shines the sun! -
    All earth is full of beauty!
    Though Love be blind
    She's wondrous kind
    And mindful of her duty!



  6. Frimaire
    Poet: Amy Lowell


    Dearest, we are like two flowers
    Blooming last in a yellowing garden,
    A purple aster flower and a red one
    Standing alone in a withered desolation.

    The garden plants are shattered and seeded.
    One brittle leaf scrapes against another.
    Fiddling echoes of a rush of petals.
    Now only you and I nodding together.

    Many were with us; they have all faded.
    Only we are purple and crimson.
    Only we in the dew-clear mornings.
    Smarten into color as the sun rises.

    When I scarcely see you in the flat moonlight.
    And later when my cold roots tighten,
    I am anxious for the morning,
    I cannot rest in fear of what may happen.

    You or I — and I am a coward.
    Surely frost should take the crimson.
    Purple is a finer color.
    Very splendid in isolation.

    So we nod above the broken
    Stems of flowers almost rotted.
    Many mornings there cannot be now
    For us both. Ah, Dear, I love you!



  7. Worthwhile In Life
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    Nothing worthwhile in life is easy
    And love is no different
    And at times it makes us feel queasy
    But love is truly an investment.

    In life, we must have patience
    And in love patience is a must
    A patience heart can make all the difference
    Along with giving trust.

    In life, we must have trust
    If we don't trust we have nothing
    And in love trust is a must
    The relationship is over if we don't have that feeling.

    In life, we learn to compromise
    And in love, compromising is a plus
    As without it, our love is the demise
    Compromise an important factor.

    My point is that love is not easy
    We shouldn't expect otherwise
    Love is a wonderful thing, it is dreamy
    But like everything in life, we have to work at it!
