“A beautiful gift for a lover. Perfect Valentine’s Day gift or some other romantic moment. Draw a bath for them, light a candle, pour some wine, and sit and read them some of these often torrid poems. You will thank me later! MUCH later!” By G. Wells
“Perhaps this is the most romantic and most beautiful book of love poems ever written. Every word, every stanza is so easily read, so quickly understood, like an arrow to the heard. Give this gift to your lover and they will never forget it.” By F. Graham
