I Love You

Read and listen to the poem 'I Love You' by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Listen to it being read by a native speaker of English from the south of England here.

Back to some of the very best poems in English!

I love your lips when they're wet with wine

And red with a wild desire;

I love your eyes when the lovelight lies

Lit with a passionate fire.

I love your arms when the warm white flesh

Touches mine in a fond embrace;

I love your hair when the strands enmesh

Your kisses against my face.

 

Not for me the cold calm kiss

Of a virgin's bloodless love;

 Not for me the saint's white bliss,

Nor the heart of a spotless dove.

But give me the love that so freely gives

And laughs at the whole world's blame,

With your body so young and warm in my arms,

It sets my poor heart aflame.

 

So kiss me sweet with your warm wet mouth,

Still fragrant with ruby wine,

And say with a fervour born of the South

That your body and soul are mine.

Clasp me close in your warm young arms,

While the pale stars shine above,

And we'll live our whole lives away

In the joys of a living love.
