Looking for a Love Poem
For my current WIP, I’m looking for a love poem. Here are the requirements:
- Must be in the public domain.
- Must be somewhat obscure — nothing that is regularly anthologized in high school or college freshman lit classes — but see 3 below.
- Must be by generally recognizable author (e.g., Keats, Shelly, Byron, etc.)
- May be long, but a single stanza or two must be quotable, to get the feeling of the wild, romantic love expressed in the work.
Yeah. I made it through my departmental comps by using medieval devotional poetry as my examples for “poetry”.
So? Anyone have any suggestions?
Mindy, knowing someone online will come up with the perfect poem!
