How many ways are there to say the words "I love you"? According to poetry, the ways are countless and rich with room for humour, lust, tenderness and a healthy dose of self-mockery. These fourteen poems are not about love but declare it with an immediacy that's captivating and irresistible. Longing may be expressed using all sorts of images there's even a riff on a famous Shakespeare sonnet where we find ourselves in outer space but at the heart of all the poems is love and the urgent need to proclaim it: "I love your eyes when the lovelight lies Lit with a passionate fire." - from 'I Love You' by Ella Wheeler Wilcox This is an anthology that says "I love you" with a freshness and directness that's guaranteed to stir even the stoniest of hearts.
