April is poetry month! In honor of that I’m going to be sharing a poem about love every day through the month. Except for yesterday, because I forgot. (Most of them will be love poems, but not all.)
I want to hear what you think of them–whether you like them, whether you think they capture part of the experience of love. And please, comment or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your own favorite love poems, because I’m not sure I’ve got thirty! Poems not by white men especially sought, because that’s mostly what I’ve got.
I’ll start off with this amazing poem my friend Sonia shared last Valentine’s Day.
“I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone” by Richard Brautigan.

Wow. You are NOT kidding. I love the title choice, too!
