[Poetry Friday] A Valentine 3-in-1 Collaborative Blogpost from the Ladies of GatheringBooks

poetry friday

Myra, Iphigene, and Fats here.

We are very excited to do one of our rare collaborative blogposts. We thought it would be quite fitting since it’s rare that Valentine’s Day would fall exactly on a Poetry Friday. Since we are on a love-binge this week, we are here to share with you the love poems that spoke to us today. If you wish to make this a very poetic Valentine’s Day, I suggest you head over to the beautiful Linda from Teacher Dance who is hosting the Lovefest this week.

Like what I always do (Myra), I took screenshot photos of the webpage where I found the poems and edited it using an iPhone app. Enjoy dear friends!

Myra’s Valentine Poem: ee cummings’ [love is more thicker than forget]


Fats’ Valentine Poem: Ella Wheeler Wilcox’s Love’s Language



Iphigene’s Valentine Poem: Bright Star from John Keats


Here is a read-aloud of Bright Star found on Youtube:

How about you, dear friends, what is your Valentine poem?

  6. ee – i remember when in high school i was first introduced to his works fascinating to me


  7. The simile of love’s emotions moving like weighty barges — so true. This was a wonderful trio of poems, ladies. I’m always a sucker for William Carlos Williams’ love poem “This Is Just to Say.”
