Is it just me, or do your blogs consistently get hits from people looking for love poems? And when your friends get married, are you as the resident poet obliged to find sappy poems for them? I’d like to make a big list of good but less clichéd love poems. No Bible. No Khalil Gabran.
EBB gets excerpted and overplayed but it is still really fine love poetry. This also applies to Shakespeare– the populace gets stuck on one or two sonnets and they’re not necessarily even the best ones.
