Wishing all you romantics out there a wonderful Valentines day! I wrote a short poem to mark the occasion – it’s really an homage to some great love sayings rather than a poem – hope you like it!
They say that love conquers all,
All conquering love.
They say that love is a many-splendoured thing,
Beautiful splendid love.
The say that true love comes quietly,
Wait quietly for love.
They say that that love is a battlefield,
Sometimes we have to fight for love.
They say that you have to give love to receive love,
They say there is always madness in love,
Madly in love.
The say that love is the beginning and the end,
They say that love is an irresistible desire,
They say that where there is love there is life,
Love for love.
They say that all you need is love,
Love is all you need.
They say a word,
A solitary word tells all,
And that word is,
