Deep Romantic Love Poems
Deep romantic love poems are best expressed at important moments in your life. While they can be used early in the dating process, they are best suited later on in the relationship as their meaning grows with time.
The turn of a phrase can sometimes bring tears to your eyes, or warmth to your heart.
I hope that these romantic love poems from famous authors will create a positive reaction for you and your special one.
Feel free to copy your favorite poem onto a piece of parchment paper (using nice calligraphy) then roll it up and wrap it with a piece of red ribbon. You can then deliver it with a single red rose...
If you just thought that this was too much work, let me reassure you by saying that you can buy nice paper from most office suppliers, and you can then "cut and paste" the poem into a word processor and change the font.
Powerful & Deep Romantic Love Poems
by E.B. Browning
Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote this magnificent piece of poetry:
And which, when rising up from breast to brow
Doth crown me with a ruby large enow
To draw men's eyes and prove the inner cost,
This love even, all my worth, to the uttermost,
I should not love withal, unless that thou
Hadst set me an example, shown me how,
When first thine earnest eyes with mine were crossed
And love called love. And thus, I cannot speak
Of love even, as a good thing of my own:
Thy soul hath snatched up mine all faint and weak,
And placed it by thee on a golden throne,
And that I love (O soul, we must be meek!)
Is by thee only, whom I love alone."
Love Sonnet CXLII by Shakespeare

Hate of my sin, grounded on sinful loving:
O! but with mine compare thou thine own state,
And thou shalt find it merits not reproving;
Or, if it do, not from those lips of thine,
That have profan'd their scarlet ornaments
And seal'd false bonds of love as oft as mine,
Robb'd others' beds' revenues of their rents.
Be it lawful I love thee, as thou lov'st those
Whom thine eyes woo as mine importune thee:
Root pity in thy heart, that when it grows,
Thy pity may deserve to pitied be.
If thou dost seek to have what thou dost hide,
By self-example mayst thou be denied!"
More Deep Romantic Love Poems
This lovely romantic poem was written by Richard Aldington, edited by Louis Untermeyer, ed., and published in Modern British Poetry in 1920.
I would give up
Even that beauty I have loved too well
That I might love you better.
Alas, how poor the gifts that lovers give-
I can but give you of my flesh and strength,
I can but give you these few passing days
And passionate words that, since our speech began,
All lovers whisper in all ladies' ears.
I try to think of some one lovely gift
No lover yet in all the world has found;
I think: If the cold sombre gods
Were hot with love as I am
Could they not endow you with a star
And fix bright youth for ever in your limbs?
Could they not give you all things that I lack?
You should have loved a god; I am but dust.
Yet no god loves as loves this poor frail dust."
