Love Found: 50 Classic Poems of Desire, Longing, and Devotion
For new sweethearts and long-wed couples alike, poetry is the ultimate gift of love. The classic love poems gathered in this elegant volume capture the full spectrum of romance—desire, longing, passion, and partnership. From Emily Dickinson's steamy declaration that "were I with thee / wild nights should be / our luxury!" to Langston Hughes's gorgeous image of love as "a ripe plum / growing on a purple tree," this is an exquisite collection of swoon-worthy love poems for the ages. Curated by authors Jessica Strand and Leslie Jonath, with illustrations by Jennifer Orkin Lewis, Love Found is perfect for Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries, or spur-of-the-moment romantic gestures.
