words of romance

 A romatic idea for the right moment.

Memorize one of Shakespeare’s love sonnets and recite it to your partner when you are in a romantic setting like a botanical garden. Don’t just suddenly start reciting poetry as this will just sound corny.While you are cuddling your partner, ask in a joking manner, “So is now agood time to recite a love poem to you?” She will probably say yes, expecting you to come up with something of the “Roses are Red…” variety.Instead, look into her eyes, smile and recite the sonnet. Try the sonnet below. If this is too long, just memorize the first four lines and the last two.

Now if it easier for you to sing of your love and you have a pleasant voice you could sing your love a song. It is usually easier to remember the words of a song

Shakespeare Love Sonnet 18

Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimmed.
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest,
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st.
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Now if the idea of reciting poetry scares you. Write an original love poem or copy a beautiful one onto lovely stationery and present to your love with a single red rose. You may get bold enough to read the poem to them.

Go ahead get creative with your romance
