LOVE - Saint Valentine's Day Poems
 
3. Come live with me and be my love By-Christopher Marlowe
 
Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills, and fields,
Woods or steepy mountain yields.

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold,
With buckles of the purest gold;

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs:
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my love.

The shepherds' swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.

 
4. Life in a Love - by Robert Browning
 
Escape me?
Never—
Beloved!
While I am I, and you are you,
So long as the world contains us both,
Me the loving and you the loth,
While the one eludes, must the other pursue.
My life is a fault at last, I fear:
It seems too much like a fate, indeed!
Though I do my best I shall scarce succeed.
But what if I fail of my purpose here?
It is but to keep the nerves at strain,
To dry one's eyes and laugh at a fall,
And baffled, get up to begin again,—
So the chase takes up one's life, that's all.
While, look but once from your farthest bound,
At me so deep in the dust and dark,
No sooner the old hope drops to ground
Than a new one, straight to the selfsame mark,
I shape me—
Ever
Removed!
 
 
5. And I Love You So - by Perry Como
 

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I've lived til now
I tell them I don't know
And you love me too
Your thoughts are just for me
You set my spirit free
I'm happy that you do

And yes I know how lonely life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won't let me be
But I don't let the evening get me down
Now that you're around me

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
That is my belief

And I love you so
I'm such a happy man
Life began again
The day you took my hand
