Feeling Romantic? Valentine’s Day is Just Around the Corner
In the Times, there is an article by Andrew Motion, ex Poet Laureate, on wooing with love poetry for Valentine’s Day.
The Poetry Archive has compiled a collection of poems ‘to enthral, entertain and beguile lovers everywhere. The idea is simple. You choose the reader and the poem you think is likely to have the desired effect on your beloved, then send it to his or her mobile phone.’
Why am I telling you this? Apart from the fact that I am an incurable romantic.
Because one of the poems you can send to your loved one is going to be Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare, read by Daniel Radcliffe.
The poems will be available next week, and the full list is here.
My poor husband.
