Excerpts from Some LOVE POEMS
Selected by SANDY SHAW

(all except the first were published in “LOVE AND LONGING,” a collection of classic poetry and prose, edited by Kate Agnew, 2004, Wizard Books, Ltd., UK)

Someday he’ll come along
The man I love
And he’ll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I’ll do my best to make him stay.

He’ll look at me and smile
I’ll understand
And in a little while
He’ll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won’t say a word

Maybe I shall meet him
Sunday, maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I’m sure to meet him one day.


He’ll buld a little home
Just meant for two...
The man I love.

Excerpts from “THE MAN I LOVE” (written
by Carolyn Leigh and Cy Nicoleman)

Why did you give no hint that night
That quickly after the morrow’s dawn,
And calmly, as if indifferent quite
You would close your term here, up and be gone
Where I could not follow
With wing of swallow
To gain one glimpse of you ever anon!

— from THE GOING by Thomas Hardy

She listened with a flitting blush,
With downcast eyes and modest grace;
For well she knew I could not choose
But gaze upon her face.”

— from LOVE by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Say I’m growing old, but add,
Jenny kissed me.”

— from JENNY KISSED ME by Leigh Hunt

Look into her eyes
Do you see what I mean
Just look at her hair
And when she speaks, oh, oh what a pleasant surprise

How do you feel
Just look at her smile
Do you see what I mean
She is looking our way
Oh how I wish we could stay, just stay for a while
How do you feel

Just look at her walk
Do you see what I mean
She is coming our way
Oh, how my heart beats, I don’t even think I can talk.
How do you feel”

— from HOW DO YOU FEEL, Jefferson Airplane
