The world for me, and all the world can hold, is circled by your arms. . . . –James Weldon Johnson [p. 48]
True love is eternal–and in poetry, it speaks across the ages to both men and women, reminding us of its power, constancy, and depth. In this lovely literary valentine, nearly a hundred evocative, tender poems from some of the most inspired poets of our time celebrate love longed for and finally found; love requited and unrequited; love secret and blazoned across the sky; loves past, present, and yet to come.
An incomparable collection of beauty and grace, Love in Verse pays fitting tribute to the world’s most treasured emotion.
