The Poetry of Permanent Love
Maupin House Publishing
The love poems of our language tend to sing the fire of romance or the pain of lost-love. These love poems are about something else. They begin with a little romance, but quickly move to the stuff of permanent love – vows, rearing children, doubt, desire, the struggle to adjust to changing circumstances, reconciliation, and commitment as strong as “the steel cables they build bridges with”. These poems are for you. They are intended to be read out loud. If you read them in the order they appear, they will tell you a story.
