The most romantic love poems


The Silent Lover i

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Passions are liken'd best to floods and streams:
The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb;
So, when affection yields discourse, it seems
     The bottom is but shallow whence they come.
They that are rich in words, in words discover
That they are poor in that which makes a lover.

Sir Walter Raleigh (1552 - 1618)
