10 Short Love Poems for You to Enjoy
Some of you may love poetry and are just looking for a new list to begin reading. Others may be working on an assignment and just want to get the easiest poem possible to explicate or read in class.
Actually, these are even great for memorizing and later reciting to your loved one at an opportune time. They'll love you for it.
Nonetheless, when it comes to reading poetry, I'm sure most of you will agree that the shorter the poem is the more likely you'll understand it, possibly enjoy it, and not get too bored while reading. This is why I have come up with a list of 10 short love poems for each of you to try.
I'm a lover of cute, short, and meaningful poems, so please give these a try. Here's what I ask in return: read all of them before making a decision. Who knows, you might fall passionately in love with them all.
