       by Jac Judy A. Campbell

2. She Walks in Beauty

       by Lord Byron

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.

3. Defeated By Love

       by Rumi

The sky was lit
by the splendor of the moon
So powerful
I fell to the ground
Your love
has made me sure
I am ready to forsake
this worldly life
and surrender
to the magnificence
of your Being.

4. What She is to Me

       by Darren C Swartland

Look at the beauty in her eyes,
a glow that shines like the sunrise.
Her smile opens up the cloudy skies,
her laughter delights butterflies.
The ocean greets her as she passes by.
Her gorgeous toes leave their mark, saying goodbye.

Gentle breeze through her hair,
she walks elegantly while astonished eyes all stare.
Rosy cheeks cover her face.
A flower-child blossoms, kindly accepting embrace.
She is a thorn-less rose without compare.
She is the love my heart will forever endear.

5. Love at First Sight

       by Danielle C. Thomas

My heart flew high,
On gossamer wings through a cloudless sky.

They said it was built upon a lie.
They told me my feelings would surely fade.
Passion would flare, and foes would be made.

Can you not put the past behind?
True love can change a river’s course
Or pierce the strongest vault with ease.

True love can turn coal into gold
Or tame the tempest to a balmy breeze.
Quite some time has passed since then:

People no longer criticize.
For now they see that truth exists
Where once there might have been only lies.

Still my feelings are the same today
As they were on that very first,
For when we touch, my heart still flies on gossamer wings through cloudless skies.

6. Riding Mountains

       by Julie Hebert

My love for you rides mountains,
So many ups and downs, emotions soar.
But one thing never changes,
My love for you, I cannot ignore.
There are days I feel this is too much,
And I don’t know what to do.
But let’s face it, who are we kidding,
I want nothing else but you!

7. I Always Will

       by Joanna Fuchs

I loved you then,
And I love you still;
I adore you now,
And I always will.

8. I Love You

       by Harry Boslem

I can’t talk to you without feeling honor.
I can’t see you without feeling wonder.
I can’t touch you without feeling pure.
I can’t feel you without wanting more.

I can’t hold you without feeling safe.
I can’t kiss you without feeling great.
I can’t miss you without feeling pain.
I can’t meet you without wanting to again.

I can’t watch you without feeling awe.
I can’t love you without feeling loved.
I can’t lay with you without feeling passion.
I can’t stay away without feeling rationed.

I can’t dream of you without sleeping soundly.
I can’t cope without you around me.
I can’t sleep without you in the bed.
I can’t be alive without feeling your breath.

I can’t think without you on my mind.
I can’t leave without feeling unkind.
But most of all,
I can’t exist without you in my life.

9. Let Me

       by Randy Batiquin

Let me take care of your broken heart
and show you how to fly.
Let me hold you gently by the hand
and kiss your tears goodbye.

Let me lead you to tomorrow’s light
and out of needless rain,
’cause all I want right now
is to see you smile again.

Let me sing you all the songs I wrote
’til you sleep in my embrace,
and I’ll keep you safe and warm until
the sunlight strokes your face.

Let me bring you up the mountain’s peak,
and I’ll let you touch the skies
to remind you of the strength I see
when I look into your eyes.

Let me kiss and show you what is love
and the happiness it brings.
You’ll sail again like a butterfly
endowed with pretty wings.

Let me do all these to let you see
our fates are intertwined.
You’re the accidental precious gem
I’ve waited long to find.

The earth and sky conspired to make us meet.
They knew we both belong
to each other like words and lovely notes
give life to every song.

So fly with me, my beautiful one.
It’s time we leave the past.
I’m yours to keep, and you are mine.
We’re finally home at last.

10. There’s No Obscurity

       by Astrid Sardinas

As I gaze into his liquid gold eyes,
Poetry radiates from his warm soul
His lips brush mine and I soar through the skies
Passion seizes me; I lose my control

An amalgam of thoughts pierce through my mind
There is love, trust, yet I feel petrified
I know destiny; our fate’s intertwined
But what if he’s a dream, one I’m denied?

A thousand years I could spend with those suns
Amid his presence I’ve conquered all realms
I’ve witnessed beauty that forever stuns
And have basked beneath his forest of elms

Then and there, I grasp truth with clarity
He’s in my arms; there’s no obscurity.

11. A Day Without You

       by Joseph Boris

A day without you is a day without Hope!
A day without you is a day without Happiness!

A day without you is a day without Existence!
A day without you is a day without the Sun!

A day without you is a day without Warmth!
A day without you is a day without a kind Word!

A day without you is a day without Laughter!
A day without you is a day without Kindness!

A day without you is a day without A Friend!
A day without you is a day without Love!

12. Mila’s Song

       by Kenneth D. Heatley

Whenever you’re in danger
Or feeling down and blue,
I’ll be there to hold your hand.
Yes, I’ll be there with you.

I would keep you safe and sound,
My arms around your waist.
You would feel my heart beat fast
As I gently touch your face.

If we were in a fairy tale,
You’d be my damsel in distress.
I would be wearing shining armor
And you a long white dress.

I would battle fierce dragons
And other monsters, too.
All these things and much, much more
I would do for you.

I would take you on my steed
Through forests dark and wild,
With ferocious beasts and demons, too.
I’ll be there by your side.

My sword will be ready
To keep you safe from harm.
I’ll fight the world just for you.
I’ll be your lucky charm.

I’ll build a castle strong and high
To keep the wolves at bay.
For all our lives to live there,
Where I will love you more each day.

Where we would live like Queen and King,
And songs of love they’d sing,
All dedicated to the one I love,
And this song for you I bring.

1. Thrilling Love

       by Joanna Fuchs

Holding your hand
Warms my heart to its core.
It’s hard to imagine
How I could love you more.
Just looking at you
Gives me a thrill.
I love you now,
And I always will.

2. Baby When You Hold Me

       by Shelagh Bullman

Baby, when you hold me, my emotions makes it clear
Just how much you mean to me while we are laying here.
I listen to your heartbeat in rhythm with my own,
With every pound that warming sound keeps me safe with love you’ve shown.

Baby, when you touch me with hands so soft but strong,
You wrap me in your warm embrace, just where I belong.
You hold me close and comfort me all throughout the night
Until you open up your eyes to first signs of daylight.

Baby when you kiss me before you start your day,
The happiness you bring my heart, no words can ever say.
You make my life so beautiful, wonderful, and new.
You’re my hopes and dreams. You’re my everything; I’m so in love with you.

3. Still to Be Neat, Still to Be Dressed

       by Ben Jonson

Still to be neat, still to be dressed,
As you were going to a feast;
Still to be powdered, still perfumed;
Lady, it is to be presumed,
Though art’s hid causes are not found,
All is not sweet, all is not sound.

Give me a look, give me a face,
That makes simplicity a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, hair as free;
Such sweet neglect more taketh me
Than all th’adulteries of art.
They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.

4. Of Love

       by Robert Herrick

How Love came in, I do not know,
Whether by th’ eye, or eare, or no:
Or whether with the soule it came
(At first) infused with the same:
Whether in part ’tis here or there,
Or, like the soule, whole every where:
This troubles me: but as I well
As any other, this can tell;
That when from hence she does depart,
The out-let then is from the heart.

5. I Know She Loves Me

       by Francisco Guzman

So many times we spent together, so many days, so many hours
So much affection, so much passion, realizing that love is ours
Through it all, she have been here…and
Through it all she has been sincere.

I know that she loves me,
Because she whispered it in my ear
I know that she loves me,
Because I can just feel it every time she gets near

Oo Baby, I just feel that with you I can unwind
Thinking of the love you give me takes over my mind
The way you do things, you’re just so beautiful
And the way you are, it’s just so graceful

It’s a good thing that I know you feel the same way.

6. Mistletoe

       by Walter De La Mare

Sitting under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
One last candle burning low,
All the sleepy dancers gone,
Just one candle burning on,
Shadows lurking everywhere:
Some one came, and kissed me there.

Tired I was; my head would go
Nodding under the mistletoe
(Pale-green, fairy mistletoe),
No footsteps came, no voice, but only,
Just as I sat there, sleepy, lonely,
Stooped in the still and shadowy air
Lips unseen—and kissed me there.

7. Love Time

       by Joanna Fuchs

If I could have all the time in the world,
I know what I would do:
I’d spend the time
In pleasure sublime,
Just by being with you.

8. It is Here

       by Harold Pinter

What sound was that?
I turn away, into the shaking room.
What was that sound that came in on the dark?
What is this maze of light it leaves us in?
What is this stance we take,
To turn away and then turn back?
What did we hear?
It was the breath we took when we first met.
Listen. It is here.

9. Recurrence

       by Dorothy Parker

Would we need not know before
How shall end this prettiness;
One of us must love the more,
One of us shall love the less.
Thus it is, and so it goes;
We shall have our day, my dear.
Where, unwilling, dies the rose
Buds the new, another year.

10. Song of the Open Road

       by Walt Whitman

Camerado, I give you my hand!
I give you my love more precious than money,
I give you myself before preaching or law;
Will you give me yourself? Will you come travel with me?
Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?

11. Nature and Art

       by Paul Laurence Dunbar

“Oh, queen, I want no gift but thee,” he said.
She heard and looked on him with love-lit eyes,
Gave him her hand, low murmuring, “I am thine,”
And at the morrow’s dawning they were wed.

12. Again and Again

       by Rainer Maria Rilke

Again and again, even though we know love’s landscape
and the little churchyard with its lamenting names
and the terrible reticent gorge in which the others
end: again and again the two of us walk out together
under the ancient trees, lay ourselves down again and again
among the flowers, and look up into the sky.

13. For Julie

       by Doogie

Many things can make me happy, many things can make me smile,
many things can make life wonderful, make it all seem so worthwhile.
But nothing makes me happier than the special friend I’ve found.
Life couldn’t feel more wonderful whenever you’re around.

14. Lover

       by Ada Limon

Excited for the word lover to come back. Come back
lover, come back to the five and dime. I could
squeal with the idea of blissful release, oh lover,
what a word, what a world, this gray waiting. In me,
a need to nestle deep into the safe-keeping of sky.
I am too used to nostalgia now, a sweet escape
of age. Centuries of pleasure before us and after
us, still right now, a softness like the worn fabric of a nightshirt
and what I do not say is, I trust the world to come back.
Return like a word, long forgotten and maligned
for all its gross tenderness.

15. My Loves

       by Langston Hughes

I love the deepness of the blue,
In my Lord’s heaven above;
But better than all these things I think,
I love my lady love.

1. Love Sonnet XI

       by Pablo Neruda

I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.

I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,

and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.

2. Silence is Golden

       by Shelagh Bullman

They say silence is Golden,
I believe it is true,
Because in that Golden silence,
my thoughts occur of you.

You are the flame in my candle
that lights the darkness of my room,
You are the scented flowers
that makes my heart full bloom.

You are the butterflies
that flicker in my stomach all day long,
When I know I will be holding you
before my day is done.

You are the stars that shimmer and shine,
You light up the skies above
In this Golden silence
it’s truly you I love.

3. In the Bone-Cracking Cold

       by M. Bartley Seigel

On this cross-quarter day, quick to temper and cool,
your long lashes startle me with their rime of hoarfrost,
and I am snared like a rabbit pulled into your gravity
by the run of our long love affair together. The seasons race past,
one following another, and the rising sap is soon to halo the maples again.
I will happily freeze in the bone-cracking cold, just to watch you
walk slowly through this sugarbush, rare as a sundog
incandescent in a fog of softly falling snow.

4. If I Thought

       by Dana Schwartz

If I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath,
I’d tell you I’ll love you forever, even beyond death.
If I thought for just one moment that your face would be the last I’d see,
I’d take a million pictures and save them just for me.
If I thought for just one moment that your voice would be the last I’d hear,
I’d listen attentively and promise not to shed a tear.
If I thought for just one moment that your touch would be the last I’d feel,
I’d embrace you and know that this has all been real.
If I thought for just one moment that my heart would beat its last beat,
I’d thank the Lord for allowing us to meet.

5. To You I Promise

       by Danny Blackburn

My love for you is unconditional and enduring.
To you I promise to always be reassuring.

My love for you protects you and is honorable.
To you I promise to always be faithful.

My love for you is understanding and passionate.
To you I promise to always be compassionate.

My love for you is thoughtful and cherishing.
To you I promise to always be devoted and caring.

My love for you is patient and kind.
To you I promise this always until the end of time.

My love for you is selfless and forgiving.
To you I promise this always, for as long as I am living.

My love for you is devoted and encouraging.
To you I promise to always listen and never be detouring.

I promise to show you, my wife, that I love you in all that I do.
I can promise these things because with all of my heart I love you.

6. Love

       by Justin Cauley

A million stars up in the sky
one shines brighter I can’t deny
A love so precious a love so true
a love that comes from me to you
The angels sing when you are near
within your arms I have nothing to fear
You always know just what to say
just talking to you makes my day
I love you honey with all of my heart
together forever and never to part.

7. When I’m with You

       by Blakelee

In your arms,
I’m in my safe haven.
With you holding me tight,
I have no other craving.

I tell you everything
and never with a lie:
all my worldly secrets
and everything that once made me cry.

Everything in my past,
with you I can forget it all.
I know I can trust you
to catch me if I fall.

If only I could explain
how much love I have for you.
Then maybe, just maybe,
you’d feel it too.

8. My Love

       by Megan Hagen

Love is a funny thing
We’ll never understand,
But hear this truth ring:
I’m in love with you.

9. I Love You

       by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I love your lips when they’re wet with wine
And red with a wild desire;
I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
Lit with a passionate fire.
I love your arms when the warm white flesh
Touches mine in a fond embrace;
I love your hair when the strands enmesh
Your kisses against my face.

Not for me the cold, calm kiss
Of a virgin’s bloodless love;
Not for me the saint’s white bliss,
Nor the heart of a spotless dove.
But give me the love that so freely gives
And laughs at the whole world’s blame,
With your body so young and warm in my arms,
It sets my poor heart aflame.

So kiss me sweet with your warm wet mouth,
Still fragrant with ruby wine,
And say with a fervor born of the South
That your body and soul are mine.
Clasp me close in your warm young arms,
While the pale stars shine above,
And we’ll live our whole young lives away
In the joys of a living love.

10. All I Need

       by Asher C. Childress

When I first saw you,
I saw perfection.
When I got to know you,
I saw pain.
When I started loving you,
I saw strength.
Now…all that I see
Is what means everything to me.

11. Imagine

       by Pete Shilling

Imagine the woods,
Without a tree,
Imagine the rivers,
Without the sea,
Imagine yourself,
Without me,
Imagine how lost,
I would be.

12. Colors of Romance

       by Randy Batiquin

Calm the winds as angels sing.
Lovers’ tune and flowers bring
little buds caressed by dew
sending pretty thoughts of you.

Hearts entwined with heav’nly bliss
spell the most romantic kiss,
yearning for the sweetest place
nowhere less in your embrace.

Ringing bells of autumn air,
whispers of my love and care
set the mood, begin the dance
paint the colours of romance.

Inside out, your beauty shows.
Inside me, this feeling grows.
‘Tis your hair, your voice, your smiles,
’tis your most angelic eyes.

Sparkling stars will soon reveal
shifting breeze that ever will
hold the sentimental light.
Let the love consume the night.

Nevermore will dreams expire.
Keep it burning, guard the fire.
Hold my hand and don’t let go.
Feel my heart and you will know.

Amber-hued the sunset sails,
leaving dust of loving trails,
chanting words that say I do.
Princess, I’m in love with you.

13. Filling Spice Jars as Your Wife

       by Kai Coggin

I have all my doors and windows open to you
and you have come all the way inside,
sat down at the table of my deepest desires
and lit a fire to warm us both,
the wind blowing through the house,
the rain gently giving way
to turmeric sunrise
and you, darling,
you are my wife.

You are my wife
and it’s like I have been waiting
my whole life
to say those words,
and I feel held in a way
I have never felt before,
to look down at my fingers
dusted with ginger and thyme
and see the gold of my wedding band
glint and shine in the warm low light glow.

14. New Love

       by Matthew Baldwin

From the first lingering glance
Shared by a pair of prying hearts
To the last dizzying dance
Performed by two sets of intricate intimate parts
I knew you.

From the first quivering intimation
Induced by the stammering staggering sighs
To the single bed with a double population
Shared by the two with magical miraculous mirroring eyes
I knew you.

15. Mysterious Love

       by Jojo Cywinski

As I lay here in the dark by your side,
You bring me great love, and I feel great pride.
For you, my darling, are my number one.
A tidal wave could approach and you’d still be my sun.
I’d protect you throughout,
No matter what.
Even at war,
I’d take a shot.

I’d take a bullet from the enemy’s gun,
Just to save you, my precious one.
You’re like a diamond in a million ways.
For a man like you, every girl prays,
Hard to find,
But close to my heart,
Mysteries aside,
Not just for the smart.

Deep in the ocean,
But standing on shore,
You’re determined you love me,
But I love you more.

16. Idle Dreams

       by Joanna Fuchs

In idle dreams of long ago,
I imagined my true love;
A perfect match, a soulmate,
An angel from above.
Now you’re here, and now I know
Our love will stay and thrive and grow.

17. Stray

       by Elizabeth Alexander

How fast they run on, past the dark pool
your voice makes, our arms which hold them back.
I was a stray man before I met you,
you say. This time you are speaking to me.

18. My Special Lady

       by James Greene

To a very lovely lady,
That I have come to know.
Oh darling I do pray,
That this love will continue to grow.

19. Our Love

       by John P. Read

L is for “laughter” we had along the way.
O is for “optimism” you gave me every day.
V is for “value” of being my best friend.
E is for “eternity,” a love that has no end.

20. Miss You

       by John P. Read

I still miss you
As the weeks and years go by.
I still miss you
Like the clouds would miss the sky.
I still miss you
Like a bird without its wings.
I still miss you
Like a flower without the joys of spring.
I still miss you
As I greet another day.
I still miss the love we shared
And the memories we both made.

21. My Melody

       by Eric Pribyl

Amazing and beautiful, not a flower or a tree.
Much prettier than that, and only I can see.
Loving and caring
right down to the core.
Filling me with happiness
and so much more.
Eyes are so stunning,
cannot look away.
Gorgeous and shining
all throughout the day.
Here in your arms
is where I belong.
The beating of your heart
is like a beautiful song.

22. Why I Chose You

       by Mina Milad

I chose her because she was the best.
I fell in love with her; God knows the rest.
Convincing myself I’m more than a mess,
God gave me perfection and nothing less.

23. You

       by Bryce Jennings

It’s that look in your eye.
It’s the smile on your face
That makes time slip by,
And I know I’m in a better place.
It’s the memories of you I have
That make any grey sky turn blue
And lets me know these feelings I have
Are true.

24. Bond and Free

       by Robert Frost

His gains in heaven are what they are.
Yet some say Love by being thrall
And simply staying possesses all
In several beauty that Thought fares far
To find fused in another star.

25. A Thought True to You

       by Sean Raine

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet,
And I love you.

26. San Antonio

       by Naomi Nye

Tonight I lingered over your name,
the delicate assembly of vowels
a voice inside my head.
You were sleeping when I arrived.

And we must rise and arm us and reprove
The insolent daylight with a steady hand,
Be not discountenanced if the knowing know
We rose from rapture but an hour ago.

8. Prophetic Soul

I know my love is true,
And oh the day is fair,
The sky is clear and blue,
The flowers are rich of hue.

13. You Are My Soul

       by Ravi Sathasivam

You are my soul that gives me a light in to my heart
You shine my way to bring me back from darkness
I found my love entwined with yours in many ways
Now, I want you and aching to be near you
You are my world that soaks me in to delight
I found your soul is my companion and guide
Without your soul my life would have been meaningless.

14. The Awakening

       by James Weldon Johnson

I dreamed that you were a bee
That one day gaily flew along,
You came across the hedge to me,
And sang a soft, love-burdened song.
You brushed my petals with a kiss,
I woke to gladness with a start,
And yielded up to you in bliss
The treasured fragrance of my heart;
And then I knew
That I had waited there for you.

15. Love Poem II

       by Ralph Pomeroy

Too late I met you and too soon I gave
But what, in the natural order, would I save?
If, like a broken mill, I did not move
And moving, be involved, revolved by love.

Certain as sunset and as wise as hills,
I could have longed my days away
Or raced in the face of shadows, out for thrills,
Or conjured up mock moments to betray.

So I did move, and did not measure how,
And met you in amazement, unprepared.
And gave you what I had and still have now,
For having moved, and giving, been unspared.

16. Galaxy Love

       by Gerald Stern

There’s too little time left to measure
the space between us for that was
long ago—that time—so just lie
under the dark blue quilt and put
the fat pillows with the blue slip.

17. The Embrace

       Mark Doty

So when I saw your unguarded, reliable face,
your unmistakable gaze opening all the warmth
and clarity of —warm brown tea—we held
each other for the time the dream allowed.

18. For Keeps

       by Joy Harjo

That night after eating, singing, and dancing
We lay together under the stars.
We know ourselves to be part of mystery.
It is unspeakable.
It is everlasting.
It is for keeps.

19. How to Love

       by January Gill O’ Neil

As they amble away, you wonder if they want
to be startled back into this world. Maybe you do, too,
waiting for all this to give way to love itself,
to look into the eyes of another and feel something—
the pleasure of a new lover in the unbroken night,
your wings folded around him, on the other side
of this ragged January, as if a long sleep has ended.

20. Sonnet XLII

       William Shakespeare

If I lose thee, my loss is my love’s gain,
And losing her, my friend hath found that loss;
Both find each other, and I lose both twain,
And both for my sake lay on me this cross:
But here’s the joy; my friend and I are one;
Sweet flattery! then she loves but me alone.

21. Rivermouth

       by Eleanor Channell

If you weren’t here, I’d fear the surge
of surf. I’d watch the moon wax and wane,
feel the constant pulling of tides, the urge
to drown myself in pity and booze, to explain
my life as “Cape Disappointment” with hard luck
spinning and winning souls like mine, a jetty
of riprap pointing to my faults, the muck
of my past too deep to dredge. But you say
you see in me a strength that strengthens you,
a heart that yearns for your heart and finds it,
upsetting even the odds we thought we knew,
renewing old hopes, confounding old conflicts.
All I know is we’re here, my love, our bed warm,
your body a bulwark to ride out the storm.

1. Two Songs

       by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Bird of my lady’s bower,
Sing her a song;
Tell her that every hour,
All the day long,
Thoughts of her come to me,
Filling my brain
With the warm ecstasy
Of love’s refrain.

2. My Angel, My Girlfriend

       by Rick Morley

What you’ve done, you’ve illuminated my soul.
It’s you and your love that has made me whole.
The feel of your love, your soft touch and caress,
We’re tight, so close; your heart beats in my chest.

All that we have always felt missing before.
Though I love you today, tomorrow it will be more.
Our love is life; we are the strongest tree,
Which will always grow forever, like you and me.

You have opened my heart and held it so dear.
You are my angel and will always keep it near.
You have seen my ups and cared when I was low.
You are my angel; I just need you to know.

You entered my life through a ray of sun above,
And when we leave, we will leave together in love.
My love for you has become my reason to be.
I hope one day you’ll find your angel in me.

3. Longing

       by Mathew Arnold

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longings of the day.

Come, as thou cam’st a thousand times,
A messenger from radiant climes,
And smile on thy new world, and be
As kind to others as to me!
Or, as thou never cam’st in sooth,

Come now, and let me dream it truth,
And part my hair, and kiss my brow,
And say, My love! why sufferest thou?

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longings of the day.

4. Waiting for Your Call

       by Cheyenne Ashley

Why am I always sitting here waiting for your call?
You tell me you’re going to call me
Then I sit and wait, keeping my hopes up for hours on end
But you never call
Then I realize you were never even going to call in the first place
And I feel stupid for waiting around for you
So I just abandon my hope and lay on my bed crying myself to sleep
The next day I ask you why you didn’t call
And I know as well as you do that your reason is a lie
That you just didn’t want to spend anytime with me
So I’ll do you a favor
Next time when you say you’re going to call me
I’ll give you some of the time I’ve spent waiting for your call
That way I know our time will never run out
Because I’ve been waiting a long time for your call.

5. Variations on the Word Love

       by Margaret Atwood

Then there’s the two
of us. This word
is far too short for us, it has only
four letters, too sparse
to fill those deep bare
vacuums between the stars
that press on us with their deafness.
It’s not love we don’t wish
to fall into, but that fear.
this word is not enough but it will
have to do. It’s a single
vowel in this metallic
silence, a mouth that says
O again and again in wonder
and pain, a breath, a finger
grip on a cliffside. You can
hold on or let go.

6. Love and Lust

       by Jazib Kamalvi

Love and lust are poles apart
Love is the base of this universe,
Lust is baseless in itself.
My subject is my subject.
Such enveloping my subject.
Such as God to His universe.
Such as Devil to this universe.
Love is a sincerity and responsibility.
Lust is insincerity, irresponsibility.
Confirmation test is just,
sacrifice or obedience.
Both or only one is must.
Lust is aimless without love.
Love is aimful without lust.
My subject is thy subject.
My subject is love and lust.
I can tell you one secret.
Love and lust are poles apart.
But make union only when.
Lust is second, love is first.
Just, ask a victim of lust.

7. Love is…

       by Adrian Henri

Love is…
Love is feeling cold in the back of vans
Love is a fanclub with only two fans
Love is walking holding paint-stained hands
Love is.
Love is fish and chips on winter nights
Love is blankets full of strange delights
Love is when you don’t put out the light
Love is
Love is the presents in Christmas shops
Love is when you’re feeling Top of the Pop
Love is what happens when the music stops
Love is
Love is white panties lying all forlorn
Love is pink nightdresses still slightly warm
Love is when you have to leave at dawn
Love is
Love is you and love is me
Love is prison and love is free
Love’s what’s there when you are away from me
Love is…

8. Trapped in a Prism

       by Udiah

Trapped in a Prism
And there’s no way to tell
Am I the one love
Or am I sentenced to hell?

Life trudges along love
With everyday
Am I the one love
Or have you put me away?

Some days it seems like
All can be well
Am I the one love
Or did you swear not to tell?

I cannot go on dear
Life has not been so swell
Am I the one dear
Or is this my own cell?

I’m in the pit now
And that’s where I will dwell
So please release me
And put an end to this spell.

9. You and I Together

       by Heather Burns

When are dreams and reality ever to meet.
My basking in your presence
Running my hands over your body
Touching your soft spots
Enjoying your presence
You lying in my arms
Renewing our love vows
You and I together enjoying each other
Emerging as one.

10. The Great Fires

       by Jack Gilbert

Love is one of many great fires.
Passion is a fire made of many woods,
each of which gives off its special odor
so we can know the many kinds
that are not love. Passion is the paper
and twigs that kindle the flames
but cannot sustain them. Desire perishes
because it tries to be love.
Love is eaten away by appetite.
Love does not last, but it is different
from the passions that do not last.
Love lasts by not lasting.
Isaiah said each man walks in his own fire
for his sins. Love allows us to walk
in the sweet music of our particular heart.

11. Love Poem

       by Sheikh Hina Yasmeen

I love love
love is fruitful
Love is Kind
Love is Motivating
Love is Comforting
Love is love

I hate Love
Love is painful
Love is heartbreaking
Love is deadly
Love is poisonous
Love is Evil

Hey stop it
Love is like what
I don’t know
All I know is Love is Love
so say all you want
But I know Love is
and I love love
I love me & you.

12. A Glimpse

       by Walt Whitman

A glimpse through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room around the stove late of a winter night, and I unremarked seated in a corner,
Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand,
A long while amid the noises of coming and going, of drinking and oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little, perhaps not a word.

13. Poem for My Love

       by June Jordan

How do we come to be here next to each other
in the night
Where are the stars that show us to our love
Outside the leaves flame usual in darkness
and the rain
falls cool and blessed on the holy flesh
the black men waiting on the corner for
a womanly mirage
I am amazed by peace
It is this possibility of you
and breathing in the quiet air.

14. I Loved You First; But Afterwards Your Love

       by Christina Rossetti

I loved you first: but afterwards your love
Outsoaring 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.
For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine;’
With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done,
For one is both and both are one in love:
Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’
Both have the strength and both the length thereof,
Both of us, of the love which makes us one.

15. Lowering of the Gaze

       by Mohja Kahf

I love the man of lowered gaze
and the woman of lowered gaze
And I love the man who looks hungrily
and the woman who looks hungrily
I have been the man with the hungry gaze
and the man of iron restraint
whose eyes leave what is covered, covered
I have been the woman with the ravenous mouth
and the woman with the disciplined will
like an axe sharply splitting wood
like an axe at the moment it is lifted
poised, in that pause before descent
And I am the gaze and the pause
and the wood that is split

16. Sonnet XLIX

       by Pablo Neruda

No one can stop the river of your hands,
your eyes and their sleepiness, my dearest.
You are the trembling of time, which passes
between the vertical light and the darkening sky.

17. Until You Came

       by James Toles

There’s not a precious moment,
where I do not want to give you my entire day.
The passion between us is strong,
ferocious to those that see.
The feelings that are shared between us.
Me for you and you for me.

18. Why I Love Thee

       by Sadakichi Hartmann

Why I love thee?
Ask why the seawind wanders,
Why the shore is aflush with the tide,
Why the moon through heaven meanders;
Like seafaring ships that ride
On a sullen, motionless deep;
Why the seabirds are fluttering the strand
Where the waves sing themselves to sleep
And starshine lives in the curves of the sand!

19. Serenade

       by Djuna Barnes

Three words, “I love you,” and the whole is said—
The greatness of it throbs from sun to sun;
I’m not asking you to walk,
But—can’t you run?

20. At Last

       by Elizabeth Akers Allen

I count no more my wasted tears;
They left no echo of their fall;
I mourn no more my lonesome years;
This blessed hour atones for all.
I fear not all that Time or Fate
May bring to burden heart or brow,–
Strong in the love that came so late,
Our souls shall keep it always now!

21. The Good Morrow

       by John Donne

My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.

22. I Carry Your Heart with Me

       by E. E. Cummings

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in
my heart)I am never without it(anywhere
I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear
no fate(for you are my fate, my sweet) I want
no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (i carry it in my heart).

It never breaks, it always stays.

4. Love is not All

       by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
I have had a lover who loved me well,
But she did not love me as I loved him.

5. When I Have Fears

       by John Keats

When I have fears that I may cease to be,
Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain,
I think of thee, and then my state,
Like to an angel came, and thou art plain.

6. A Red, Red Rose

       by Robert Burns

That blooms in June;
O my luve’s like the melodie
That echoes tuneful and ne’er done.

7. The Lady of Shalott

       by Alfred Lord Tennyson

In many-towered Camelot,
On the keen stroke of noon,
Guided by the surging stream,
She floated down to Camelot.

8. The Highwayman

       by Alfred Noyes

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—Riding—riding.

9. The Owl and the Pussycat

       by Edward Lear

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea,
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

10. In Her Eyes

       by Anonymous

In her eyes, a starry sky,
A universe of love, I lie.
Her gaze, a beacon, ever bright,
Guiding me through darkest night.

Her irises, where dreams do flow.
In her eyes, I find my peace,
A love that will forever cease.

Chasing away the darkest night.

Expressing love I hold so dear.

A melody that soars above.

Reflecting love that’s pure and new.
Her beauty, a timeless art,
A masterpiece that captures my heart.

Her strength, an iron will, so strong,
A testament to where she belongs.

Weathering storms, never to croak.
Her strength, an inspiration true,
A beacon guiding me through.

1. The Union- Hafez

       by Anonymous

Union you want
With the earth and sky,
This union we all need with love,
A golden wing from God’s heart just
Touched the ground,
Step upon it
With your brave sun-vows
And help our eyes

2. Marriage Morning

       by Lord Tennyson

Light, so low upon earth,
You send a flash to the sun.
Here is the golden close of love,
All my wooing is done.
Oh, all the woods and the meadows,
Woods, where we hid from the wet,
Stiles where we stayed to be kind,
Meadows in which we met!
Light, so low in the vale
You flash and lighten afar,
For this is the golden morning of love,
And you are his morning star.
Flash, I am coming, I come,
By meadow and stile and wood,
Oh, lighten into my eyes and my heart,
Into my heart and my blood!
Heart, are you great enough
For a love that never tires?
O heart, are you great enough for love?
I have heard of thorns and briers.
Over the thorns and briers,
Over the meadows and stiles,
Over the world to the end of it
Flash of a million miles.

3. Scaffolding

       by Seamus Heaney

Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;
Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.
And yet all this comes down when the job’s done
Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.
So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be
Old bridges breaking between you and me
Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall
Confident that we have built our wall.

4. Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day

       by William Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimmed;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand’rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to Time thou grow’st.
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

5. Love

       by James Russell Lowell

True Love is but a humble, low-born thing,
And hath its food served up in earthen ware;
It is a thing to walk with, hand in hand,
Through the every-dayness of this work-day world,
Baring its tender feet to every roughness,
Yet letting not one heart-beat go astray
From Beauty’s law of plainness and content;
A simple, fire-side thing, whose quiet smile
Can warm earth’s poorest hovel to a home

6. The White Rose

       by John Boyle O’Reilly

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

7. Vivien’s Song

       by Alfred Lord Tennyson

In Love, if Love be Love, if Love be ours,
Faith and unfaith can ne’er be equal powers:
Unfaith in aught is want of faith in all.
It is the little rift within the lute,
That by and by will make the music mute,
And ever widening slowly silence all.
The little rift within the lover’s lute
Or little pitted speck in garnered fruit,
That rotting inward slowly moulders all.
It is not worth the keeping: let it go:
But shall it? Answer, darling, answer, no.
And trust me not at all or all in all.

8. Meeting at Night

       by Robert Browning

The gray sea and the long black land;
And the yellow half-moon large and low:
And the startled little waves that leap
In fiery ringlets from their sleep,
As I gain the cove with pushing prow,
And quench its speed i’ the slushy sand.
Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;
Three fields to cross till a farm appears;
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!

9. I Am not Yours

       by Sara Teasdale

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love—put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

10. Our Many Nerve Endings

       by Courtney Queeney

I would like to say at least we perfected
entrances and exits, like professional stage actors
honing their craft, but even that’s a fantasy.
Mostly on TV the lions ate the hyenas
but sometimes the hyenas
formed a posse, and tore a lion up.
Occasionally you came in out of the rain
and I was glad to have you.

11. Heart to Heart

       by Rita Dove

It’s neither red
nor sweet.
It doesn’t melt
or turn over,
break or harden,
so it can’t feel
It doesn’t have
a tip to spin on,
it isn’t even
just a thick clutch
of muscle,
mute. Still,
I feel it inside
its cage sounding
a dull tattoo:
I want, I want—
but I can’t open it:
there’s no key.
I can’t wear it
on my sleeve,
or tell you from
the bottom of it
how I feel. Here,
it’s all yours, now—
but you’ll have
to take me,

12. To Find a Kiss of Yours

       by Federico Garcia Lorca

find a kiss of yours
what would I give
A kiss that strayed from your lips
dead to love
My lips taste
the dirt of shadows
To gaze at your dark eyes
what would I give
Dawns of rainbow garnet
fanning open before God—
The stars blinded them
one morning in May
And to kiss your pure thighs
what would I give
Raw rose crystal
sediment of the sun

13. Love Comes Quietly

       by Robert Creeley

Love comes quietly,
finally, drops
about me, on me,
in the old ways.
What did I know
thinking myself
able to go
alone all the way.

14. Married Love

       by Guan Daosheng

You and I
Have so much love,
That it
Burns like a fire,
In which we bake a lump of clay
Molded into a figure of you
And a figure of me.
Then we take both of them,
And break them into pieces,
And mix the pieces with water,
And mold again a figure of you,
And a figure of me.
I am in your clay.
In life we share a single quilt.
In death we will share a single coffin.

15. The More Loving One

       by W. H. Auden

Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on earth indifference is the least
We have to dread from man or beast.
How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

16. Air and Angels

       by John Donne

Twice or thrice had I lov’d thee,
Before I knew thy face or name;
So in a voice, so in a shapeless flame
Angels affect us oft, and worshipp’d be;
Still when, to where thou wert, I came,
Some lovely glorious nothing I did see.
But since my soul, whose child love is,
Takes limbs of flesh, and else could nothing do,
More subtle than the parent is
Love must not be, but take a body too;
And therefore what thou wert, and who,
I bid Love ask, and now
That it assume thy body, I allow,
And fix itself in thy lip, eye, and brow.

17. I Save My Love

       by Marjorie Saiser

I save my love
for what stays. The white puff
my breath makes when I stand
at night on my doorstep.
That mist doesn’t last, evaporates
like your car turning the corner,
you at the wheel, waving.
Your hand a quick tremble in a
brief illumination. Palm and fingers.
Your face toward me. You had
turned on the over-head light so I would
see you for an instant, see you waving,
see you gone.

18. Love is a Child

       by Daniel Hooks

Love was a child, so meek and so mild
Love was a child who smiled.
Love was a child who played with a toy train
Love was a child who jumped in puddles in the rain.
Love was a child who laughed and played.
Love was a child God lovingly made.
Love is a child that God now holds
Love is a child who will never grow old.
Love is a child we sorely miss
Love is a child who Angels now kiss.
Love is a child.

19. Sonnet X

       by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed
And worthy of acceptation. Fire is bright,
Let temple burn, or flax; an equal light
Leaps in the flame from cedar-plank or weed:
And love is fire. And when I say at need
I love thee…mark! I love thee–in thy sight
I stand transfigured, glorified aright,
With conscience of the new rays that proceed
Out of my face toward thine. There’s nothing low
In love, when love the lowest: meanest creatures
Who love God, God accepts while loving so.
And what I feel, across the inferior features
Of what I am, doth flash itself, and show
How that great work of Love enhances Nature’s.

20. If You Should Go

       by Countee Cullen

Love, leave me like the light,
The gently passing day;
We would not know, but for the night,
When it has slipped away.
Go quietly; a dream,
When done, should leave no trace
That it has lived, except a gleam
Across the dreamer’s face.

21. I Sing What You Loved

       by Gabriela Mistral

Life of my life, what you loved I sing.
If you’re near, if you’re listening,
remembering earth, in the evening,
my life, my shadow, hear me sing.

Life of my life, I can’t be still.
What is a story we never tell?
How can you find me unless I call?

Life of my life, I haven’t changed,
not turned aside and not estranged.
Come to me as the shadows grow long,
come, life of my life, if you know the song
you used to know, if you know my name.
I and the song are still the same.

22. Bond

       by Juana de Ibarbourou

I grew
Only for you.
Cut the acacia boughs that demand
Only destruction at your hand!
My blossom blew
Only for you.
Uproot me—in its natal hour
My lily doubted were it candle or flower.
My waters blue
Flow for you.
Drink me—never crystal knows
So pure a tide as in this channel flows.
Wings I knew
Only for you.
Pursue me! (Quivering firefly,
Veil your flame from every eye!)
I shall suffer for you.
Blessed be the evil that your love will do!
Blessed be the blade, the net I shall feel!
Blessed be thirst and steel!

1. Love Sonnet 17

       by Pablo Neruda

I don’t want to go on being just a man,

2. The One Girl at the Boys’ Party

       by May Swenson

At the boys’ party, boisterous and loud,
One girl stood out, a quiet presence proud.
Her beauty shone like a star in the night,
A jewel among the rough, unpolished crowd.

3. Love’s Philosophy

       by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The fountains mingle with the river And the rivers with the ocean,
Into one another’s lips they pour Their kisses, laughing, crying,
Without a care or sorrow or pain They blend their infinite variety.

4. The Gift

       by Khalil Gibran

Then said the lover to his beloved,
“Sweetheart, I would give you the stars,
But they are not mine to give.
Yet, love, there is something I can give,
A gift far greater than any star,
A gift that shall endure when time
Shall turn to dust and memory fade.”

5. Echo

       by Christina Rossetti

Come to me, oh, come to me,
Into my garden, I pray thee,
For I am sick with love, my dear,
And fainting with desire.

6. Sonnet 130

       by William Shakespeare

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.

“The Nightingale” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
My dearest friend, thy absence doth resemble
The nightingale’s song, which charmeth still,
And while it doth my senses thrill,
Doth make my heart with pining ache.

7. The Dark Night of the Soul

       by St. John of the Cross

Where have you hidden your face?
In what country, O my Beloved,
Where have you hidden your face?
Unable to see you, I die,
My love, consumed by longing.

8. How Do I Love Thee?

       by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.

I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

9. When I Consider How My Light is Spent

       by John Milton

When I consider how my light is spent,
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide be past,
And that I have not done the work I thought
To do before I rest, and that I feel
All this great work, even now begun,
Now I am blind, must in this state cease,
All the more fly about my darkened room
From me returns me, as a penitent one
Startled at his own unworthiness,
Wherein should I begin to spend my life,
Or how much is to be spent?

When God with a full hand pours down his life
And by the ounce extends his oil, how well
And orderly imparts his gifts, his gifts
He gives to all.

Who thirst to drink his wine, his wine he gives
He gives his bread, the bread he gives, his bread
He gives his oil, his oil he gives, his oil
He gives.

Who thirst to drink his wine, his wine he gives
He gives his bread, the bread he gives, his bread
He gives his oil, his oil he gives, his oil
He gives.

Who thirst to drink his wine, his wine he gives
He gives his bread, the bread he gives, his bread
He gives his oil, his oil he gives, his oil
He gives.

10. She Walks in Beauty, Like the Night

       by Lord Byron

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.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;

Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,

A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

11. La Belle Dame Sans Merci

       by John Keats

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge is wither’d from the lake,
And no birds sing.

O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s gone to his drey,
The deer to his lair;

Where wilt thou find a bed for thee,
O knight-at-arms,
O knight-at-arms?

The sedge has wither’d from the lake,
And no birds sing.

I saw a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful, a fairy’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.

I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant zone;
She look’d at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan.

I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sideways would she lean and sing,
A faery’s song.

She sang of Mount Abora,
Down to the river running,
O’er many a dark and winding wood,
And forest green.

And she sang, “La Belle Dame sans Merci,
The Lady of Shalott.”

She look’d at me, she laugh’d at me,
She mock’d me with her fairy eyes,
And she sang, “La Belle Dame sans Merci,
The Lady of Shalott.”

I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried, “La Belle Dame sans Merci,
The Lady of Shalott.”

I saw their starved lips in the gloam,
With horrid warning gaped wide,
And I heard the grating roar of wheels,
And the axletree was red with rust.

Then by the moon the reaper weary,
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
Listening, whispers, “‘Tis the fairy’s song,
The Lady of Shalott.”

The knight rides on, the lady lies,
Nor sunlight on her streaming hair,
Nor any leaf-fringed legend stirs,
No birds sing carols in her ear!

Only reapers, reaping early
In among the beared barley,
Hear a song that echoes cheerly
From the river winding clearly,
Down to tower’d Camelot;
The Lady of Shalott.
