Amongst Poetry Center patrons, one of the most sought-after types of poem is the love poem. Love poems have an endless number of purposes, whether read as a toast at a wedding; tucked inside a love note to a partner, your future self, or a friend; or shared as a gesture of hope. This online exhibition presents poems of love and compassion, offering both a view of humanity on a large scale and a glimpse of life’s most intimate moments.
Exhibitions are displayed online at poetrycenter.omeka.net.
