“She Walks in Beauty” - BY LORD BYRON (GEORGE GORDON)

She walks in beauty, like the night 
Of cloudless climes and starry skies; 
And all that’s best of dark and bright 
Meet in her aspect and her eyes; 
Thus mellowed to that tender light  
Which heaven to gaudy day denies. 

"She Walks in Beauty" is a short lyrical poem written by Lord Byron in 1813. It is considered as one of the greatest poems written by Byron. This poem draws inspiration from an event in Byron's life when he saw Mrs. Anne Beatrix Wilmot, his cousin Robert Wilmot’s wife. Byron was mesmerized by her unusual beauty and compared her to lots of beautiful, but dark things, like "night" and "starry skies. In this poem Lord Byron awe upon seeing the woman walking in her own aura of beauty and expresses how beautiful the woman is not only from outward appearance but also how her inner-self is filled with goodness, purity and innocence.

I loved you first: but afterwards your love - Christina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

I loved you first: but afterwards your love
Out soaring mine, sang such a loftier song
As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove.
Which owes the other most? my love was long,
And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong;
I loved and guessed at you, you construed me
And loved me for what might or might not be –
Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong.

Christina Rossetti has written this poem and it talks about the symbiotic relationship of love with charming modesty. This poem expresses how two people can get united together through love and understanding. Here, Christina Rossetti champions in showing how love shares a unique distinct connection and how it does not focus on a person’s flaws. The poet talks about women’s charm and attempts to reverse the male literary tradition of the glorification of women.

When You Are Old' (1892) by W.B.Yeats

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

An Irish poet William Butler Yeats has written this poem. The poem talks about a current situation with his lover and also predicts about the future. This poem expresses more about the poets feeling, the love he once shared with his love interest. This woman is probably an Irish revolutionary Maud Gonne, who ended up marrying another man. This poem talks about his endless love and highlights his failed relationship with Gonne. In this last stanza William adds a twist to the poem and reminds his former mistress that she would regret this for the rest of her life.

To My Dear and Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet

I prize thy love more than the whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.

This is a short poem written by Anne Bradstreet. The poet talks about the intensity of happiness a person can derive from being with the person one loves. The poet also expresses that her esteem for her husband is absolute and eternal. She says that her love for him can never be surpassed and it is his love alone that can satisfy her. Anne Bradstreet, through this poem, expresses her thankfulness and gratitude towards her husband for this life-changing immortal love.

Meeting at Night by Robert Browning

A tap at the pane, the quick sharp scratch
And blue spurt of a lighted match,
And a voice less loud, through joys and fears,
Than the two hearts beating each to each.

Meeting at Night written by Robert Browning speaks about a rendezvous between two lovers. This poem is filled with zeal and enthusiasm and talks about the excitement between the lovers upon seeing each other. He talks about the journey to his lover’s place and describes what he sees and experiences without disclosing his intended destination. More accurately this poem is all about a secret and joyful reunion between him and his lover. Robert describes how powerful an intimate relationship can be between two individuals.

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns

O my Luve’s like a Red, Red Rose
That’s newly sprung in June:
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune!

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
so deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:

This poem has been written by Robert Burns in 1794. Despite actually being a song and not a poem, the poem expresses an intense love. The imagery red roses and rock melting in the sun, the poet speaks about the sweetness of true and lasting love. Through his poem Robert seeks to strike a balance between eternal and temporal forms of love reminding the readers that beauty is transitory, but love is always eternal. His beloved most probably is Jean Armour, a Scottish woman with whom he was deeply in love with. He compares her to be like a red-red rose that will never die even if the whole world is destroyed.

Footprint on Your Heart by Gary Lenhart

Someone will walk into your life,
Leave a footprint on your heart,
Turn it into a mudroom cluttered
With encrusted boots, children’s mittens,
Scratchy scarves—
Where you linger to unwrap 
Or ready yourself for rough exits 
Into howling gales or onto 
Frozen car seats, expulsions
Into the great outdoors where touch
Is muffled, noses glisten,
And breaths stab,

Gary Lenhart is one of the most celebrated poets of the 21st century. This poem is all about love and him getting hurt. He talks about how your old memories hold a scar on your heart. He compares relationship to be like a season and talks about how love can be equally painful and depressing.

When you are in a real relationship, then there is no need of praising each other using poems and all. It is just based on how honest you are with your partner and how much you care about each other's feelings.

I just love writing poems. When I was in college I used to write poems to impress my crush. She was really impressed by me and then it became a habit for me to write something new every time I met her.

I really liked these poems but to be very frank you should express your feelings to your partner straight from your heart because everyone's love story is different.
