“If music be the food of love, play on" was one of Shakespeare’s finest lines. If music is food, then poetry is the wine.
In this volume of classic love poetry, the flavoured capture of words and rhythms makes us think more carefully of words and their value to us. They also surprise us with their structure and meaning, layering in thoughts and emotions that we might otherwise shy away from. Poems are wonderful ways to express what we feel for a very special someone.
