A few weeks ago we released the touching Love is the Beauty of the Soul by Stephen Dixon. Today being Valentines Day, we were feeling in a loving mood, so – inspired by the beautiful poems from Love is the Beauty of the Soul . We looked at some of our favourite lines for our favourite poems.






The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot



"For I have known them all already, known them all:

Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons;

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons."




Oh Yes  by Charles Bukowski




"There are worse things than being alone,

But it often takes decades to realize this,

And most often when you do it's too late.

And there's nothing worse than too late."




There is a lady sweet and kind by Thomas Ford



"Her gesture, motion, and her smiles,

Her wit, her voice my heart beguiles,

Beguiles my heart, I know not why,

And yet, I'll love her till I die."



She Walks In Beauty Like the Night  by Lord Tennyson



"She walks in beauty, like the night

Of cloudless climes and starry skies;

And all that's best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes".




Desire by Samuel Taylor Coleridge



"Where true Love burns Desire is Love's pure flame;

It is the reflex of our earthly frame, 

That takes its meaning from the nobler part,

And but translates the language of the heart."




Her voice by Oscar Wilde



"And there is nothing left to do

But to kiss once again, and part,

Nay, there is nothing we should rue,

I have my beauty, - you your Art,

Nay, do not start,

One world was not enough for two

Like me and you."




Floating by Stephen Dixon



"So breathe a little, take it in

The floating darkness majesty,

Where kith and kin or shame and sin

Are vanquished without travesty."
