This week is Valentine’s Day. If you’re thinking about how to tell the one you love how much you care, why not write him or her a love poem?
Please note- some writers are paired with folks who don’t like writing, and it’s a mistake to give them a poem. On the other hand, many writers are either:
- Partnered with other writers, or
- Partnered with people who appreciate good writing, or
- Partnered with people who’ll at least appreciate that you put in the effort.
A love poem is a nice gift for any of these types of people.
First, keep in mind that the best topics for a love poem are
- Your feelings about the recipient, or
- The recipient’s good qualities.
The other thing you need to get started is to decide what kind of poem to write. Some possibilities:
- The classic “Roses are red, violets are blue…” format
- A haiku
- A limerick
- A sonnet
- Something in free verse, where it doesn’t have to rhyme, but the end result should have a pleasing feel
It all depends on what experience you have with poetry and what kind of person you’re giving it to.
So, think about writing your sweetie a love poem for Valentine’s Day- it’s a special gift that no one else can give.
