How many ways are there to say the words \"I love you\"?

According to poetry, the ways are countless and rich – with room for humour, lust, tenderness and a healthy dose of self-mockery.

These fourteen poems are not about love but declare it with an immediacy that’s captivating and irresistible. Longing may be expressed using all sorts of images – there’s even a riff on a famous Shakespeare sonnet where we find ourselves in outer space – but at the heart of all the poems is love and the urgent need to proclaim it:

\"I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
Lit with a passionate fire.\"
- from 'I Love You' by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

This is an anthology that says \"I love you\" with a freshness and directness that’s guaranteed to stir even the stoniest of hearts.

Poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Burns, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Katharine Goda, Nathalie Handal, Christopher Marlowe, Mary Mulholland, James Nash, Abigail Parry, Rachel Plummer, William Shakespeare, Penny Sharman, Dominic Weston and Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Includes one poetry pamphlet, envelope and co-ordinating bookmark with space for your own personal message.
