WRITING LOVE POEMS

With Valentine's Day wilting over the hill, we now have a new market for love poems from Inkerman & Blunt (Donna Ward), Australian Love Poems 2013. Therefore, this workshop aims to help you write a sincere, yet effective poem(s). However, “sincere” does not mean trite, twee, sentimental, or clichéd. The challenge is to take an age-old theme and make it fully your own (Robert Graves once said there are only three perennial subjects for poetry – “love, death, and the changing of the seasons”). 

The Perfume of Flowers
                  Charles Olson


The perfume
of flowers! A haw

drops such odour
it stops me

in the wall
of its fall. Love
arrests

Lime-trees
saturate

the night. We walk
in it

On a path jonquils
fill

the air. Love
is a scent.
