For each of the last three years, Robert Pinsky has collected a small set of Valentine's Day poems (and insightful analysis) around a particular theme - poems about love
, poems against love
, and poems about lust
Happy Valentine's Day
to my favourite virgin.
I'd show you how much I love you,
but I don't feel like getting married.

The time for more public poetry
is at hand with the soon-to-arrive National Poetry Month. Perhaps you favor love poems? Poets and Writers
listed the 25 best (among those online: #1

was once considered the best example, but this offensive poem
is even more famous. Of course, nonsense
, as is alliteration
. Eager to take your own turn? Try some complex forms
. Double sestina
the other night
after eating chili
i ripped a pretty good one.
i lifted the blanket
to trap your head
you weren't there.
i miss you.
