Top 10 – best love poems
Love lyrics are the basis of creativity of many Russian poets. And this is not surprising, because love itself is multifaceted. She can give joy and pleasure, but at the same time, often makes you suffer. The duality of love is the mystery that sooner or later everyone has to solve. At the same time, poetic natures tend to tell about their feelings not only to the subject of their hobbies, but also often trust them to paper, creating amazingly beautiful poems, quivering and sublime.
10th place. Premonition of love can be weary and filled with sadness. However, most often that small period of time when a person is not yet aware that he is already in love, filled with confusion and anxiety. In his poem “Premonition of Love is More Terrible” Konstantin Simonov notes that waiting for love is like a calm before a storm or a short respite before an attack, when feelings and thoughts rush at a gallop, and the soul is literally torn to pieces.
“Premonition of love is worse” K. Simonov
Premonition of love is worse
The most love. Love is like a fight
Eye to eye you converged with her.
Nothing to wait, she is with you …
9th place. Nevertheless, it is still necessary to overcome the meat of the obstacles and tell the chosen one or darling about your feelings, which for many people is a real test. After all, passions are already raging, but still lack the courage to take the first step. As a result, poems are born that are similar to the one written by Alexander Pushkin. His “Confession” is a mixture of admiration and hope, joy and sadness, jealousy and despair. And hopes that feelings are mutual.
I love you, even though I am frantic
Though it is labor and shame in vain,
And in this stupidity unhappy
At your feet, I confess!
I do not face and not over the years …
It’s time, time for me to be smarter!
But I recognize all the signs …
8th place. However, love does not exist without quarrels that can flare up over trifles. But if the feelings are strong enough, then the beloved find the strength to forgive each other mutual resentment and reconcile. The feelings that people experience at the same time very accurately and vividly described in his poem “You and I are stupid people,” the poet Nikolai Nekrasov. In his opinion, after a quarrel, love flashes with a new force, giving joy, tenderness and spiritual cleansing.
“We are stupid people” N.Nekrasov
You and I are stupid people:
What a minute, then the flash is ready!
Lightweight agitated chest,
Unreasonable, harsh word …
7th place. The opponent of the quarrels, in turn, is Boris Pasternak. In the poem “To Love Others is a Heavy Cross,” he states that love makes a person more sublime and sensitive. And for the purification of the soul it is not at all necessary to reward each other with mutual reproaches, and then seek solace and ask for forgiveness. You can easily do without quarrels, and this can be done by any person who truly loves.
“To love others is a heavy cross” B. Pasternak
Love others heavy cross,
And you are beautiful without convolutions,
And your secret delights
The solution of life is equivalent …
6th place. No one knows at what exact moment the meeting will take place, which subsequently can drastically change a person’s life. Love sometimes flashes completely suddenly, and this amazing moment tried to capture Alexander Blok in his poem “The Stranger”. However, he preferred to leave his feelings to himself, enjoying them as tart expensive wine. After all, love without reciprocity is not always painted with sadness. She can give no less joy than communicating with a loved one.
“Stranger” A. Blok
In the evenings over the restaurants
The hot air is wild and deaf,
And ruled by drunken shouts
Spring and pernicious spirit …
5th place. Nevertheless, a true ally of this bright and very strong feeling is passion, which overwhelms a person, plunging into the whirlpool of events and actions, which he sometimes does not find an explanation, and does not want to do so. This overwhelming feeling attempted to be reflected in his poem “I love you more than the sea, and the sky, and singing …” Konstantin Balmont, admitting that passion flashes instantly, and only then true love comes to replace you, full of tenderness and romance.
“I love you more than the sea, and the sky, and singing …” K. Balmont
I love you more than the sea, and sky, and singing,
I love you longer than the days I have been given on earth.
You alone burn me like a star in the silence of distance
You are a ship that does not sink in dreams, nor in the waves, nor in the darkness …
4th place. Another feeling, which is the constant companion of love, is jealousy. Few of those in love can escape this bitter fate, at first tormented by doubts in their response, and later by the fear of losing their loved one forever. And often the most ardent and passionate love, poisoned by jealousy, develops into all-consuming hatred. An illustration of such a relationship can be “The Ballad of Hate and Love” by Eduard Asadov, in which a banal betrayal destroys not only love, but also serves as an incentive to survive, filling the heart with a thirst for revenge. Thus, love and hate perfectly complement each other and can coexist in the heart of almost any person who is unable to suppress one of these feelings, and prefers his life to consist of a series of joys and disappointments.
“The Ballad of Hate and Love” E.Asadov
The blizzard roars like a gray-haired giant
The second day without subsiding,
Roars like five hundred airplane turbines,
And there is no end for her, damned! …
3rd place. It is no secret that over time, even the most ardent feelings dulled, and love turns into an endless routine. Anticipating the development of relations in a similar way and realizing that only a few happy couples manage to avoid separation, Nikolay Klyuev wrote a poem “Love began at summer”. In it, he tried to give an answer to the question of why people, who yesterday were so enthusiastic about each other, today are full of indifference and even some contempt for both themselves and former lovers. But – you can’t tell the feelings, and you have to put up with it, even if at the initial stage of the development of the relationship, it seems to both lovers that their union is eternal. In life, everything is much more banal and more prosaic. Faded feelings are rarely resurrected by anyone. And most often the novel, which ended in parting, eventually causes only a slight sadness in his characters.
“Love began in the summer” N. Klyuev
Love began in the summer
The end is in autumn September.
You came to me with a greeting
In the maiden outfit simple …
2nd place. But sometimes the image of a once close and beloved person is simply deleted from the heart, thrown out to the back of the memory, as an unnecessary thing, and nothing can be done about it. Ivan Bunin experienced a similar situation, who in the poem “We met by chance, on the corner …” warns all lovers that sooner or later they will be forgotten. And this is a kind of payment for love, which is inevitable, unless people can learn to accept their chosen ones and the chosen ones as they are, forgiving them of their imperfection.
“We met by chance, on the corner …” I. Bunin
We met by chance on the corner.
I walked quickly and suddenly like the light of a lightning
Evening cut through the half gloom
Through black radiant eyelashes …
1 place. An example of such an all-consuming love, which is devoid of conventions and therefore close to the ideal, can be found in Osip Mandelstam’s poem “I feel sorry that it is winter now …”. Love is, first of all, an enormous effort to maintain a feeling that can fade at any moment. And – the realization that it is made up of various trifles, the value of which people realize only when they lose.
“I feel sorry that now it is winter …” O. Mandelstam
I feel sorry that now winter
And mosquitoes are not heard in the house,
But you reminded yourself
About frivolous straw …
