How does love speak? . . . In the embrace where madness melts in bliss,And the convulsive rapture of a kiss–Thus doth Love speak.–Ella Wheeler WilcoxAt the heart of love lies the quickening of the senses–the thrill of touch, the perfume of passion, the taste and the voice of love, the vision of the beloved.Sensual love has inspired poets throughout the ages–from the Bible’s beautiful Song of Songs to the lively evocations of sensual love and the private world of lovers created by such gifted contemporary poets as Stanley Kunitz, Maya Angelou, and W.
