"love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail" (E E Cummings)
Love is always kind. It is enduring. It does not bear a grudge. Love always trusts. It is never selfish. It is unbound. It is hopeful. It always defends. However, love, as we all know, is a two-sided thing; with the joy comes the pain!
"The hottest love has the coldest end." - Socrates
Whereas the joy of love comes as a swift flowing river, the pain when arrives, is always more intense, more unbearable, and sharper - the river of joy comes first and then follows the vast ocean of pain. Love and pain - these are the two powerful emotions that almost all of the classic poets have touched in their work.
A collection of sixty-one famous love poems of some of the most influential poets like Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, E E Cummings, Sara Teasdale, Amy Lowell, Robert Browning, John Clare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, "YOU left me, sweets, two legacies" is a collection to savour.
