Four Short Love Poems

Love Poems

Four Short Love Poems is a small collection of poetry with the common theme of love. What I love about poetry is that you can say so much in just a few words. What may take a whole page of prose can often be explained in just one or two stanzas of a poem. Love is also arguably the most common theme in poetry, and I hope you enjoy these four short love poems.

1.You and I

We fell in love
At first sight.
I couldn’t wait
To hold you tight.

I love each day
We spend together.
You and I,
Now and forever.

2.Night Sky (Stars)

We stare up at
The starry sky.
Upon the hill,
Just you and I.

A warm wind blows
Amid soft sighs,
As we await
The sweet sunrise.

3.Snow

Snow fell softly
At the Christmas birth.
The chill invaded
The small child’s heart.

They waited patiently
For that special love
To step inside
And thaw the snow.

4.A Relationship

A relationship
Is hard to form,
Sometimes volatile
Like a storm.

Who to trust
And who to doubt?
Gossip grows
And rumors shout.

Longtime poet but not in the traditional technical sense. I enjoy rhyme but like to experiment and dabble in many different forms and maybe even make up some of my own. There is always a message or lesson I want to promote through my writing, for that reason, my poetry generally shies away from the abstract and obscure.

Longtime poet but not in the traditional technical sense. I enjoy rhyme but like to experiment and dabble in many different forms and maybe even make up some of my own. There is always a message or lesson I want to promote through my writing, for that reason, my poetry generally shies away from the abstract and obscure. After a lot of procrastinating I have finally self-published my first eBooks of poetry "I Laughed a Smile" and "On the Wings of Eagles" at Lulu.com. Now I find myself branching out and experimenting with short fiction. I have also been fortunate to have two poems chosen to be made into songs and recorded. The first "On the Road to Kingdom Come" by Al Wordlaw, and the second, "If I Could Write a Love Poem" by award-winning Israeli/British singer Tally Koren. I am also finding my services increasingly in demand as a freelance writer and I have ghost-written the text for a number of children's books and educational tutorials. It has taken me many years of searching and restlessness to realise that my life's passion is to write. It saddens me that I wasted so many years not devoting to that, but thinking positively, the experiences gained over those years is now wonderful material for my stories and poems. I want to try to bring a new focus on poetry and try to make it appealing to a new generation of young people and those who thought they never liked or understood it before.

    I used to write 6 lines of poetry all the time. Why you might ask? Because, that was how many lines I could fit on one of my photographs that could be read easily. You are correct John sometimes in poetry one can convey the most tender emotions is just a few simple words. Very much enjoy… stay healthy…

    Thank you Kurt, that makes a lot of sense making six line poetry to accompany a photograph. Now the same reasoning applies for posting poetry on a platform like Instagram where poets white very short poems specifically for there. I have experimented with that myself. You stay healthy too my friend.

    Sometimes it’s great to get to the point, many times less is more. I loved all of these John. Like Kurt said you can feel the emotions in the words. Nice work

      Than you Paul. Sometimes it’s good not to think too hard about the poetry, just strip everything away and write what flows from the heart. Glad you could feel the emotion.

    Well written poems John. I am glad to read your work during these times that may cause one to forget how important love is in our lives. Jamie

      Hi Jamie, yes these are certainly trying times, and although we take all the precautions we can, it’s better to concentrate on the ones who love us rather than stress about what’s out of our control. Thanks for reading.
