Here is a playlist for my friend Shira, a high school teacher, who is looking for great love poems.

Here's why:

"I have this one student in my Writing Center that puts his head down every session and doesn't budge it. His name is Fabian and I think to myself, "Boy do you look disengaged." But then last week, at the beginning of the period, Jahneek read a love poem he wrote to the whole class and I saw Fabian's head twitch. When I asked Fabian if he liked the poem, he said "yeah." So I said, "Is that the type of thing you'd want to do in here? Read love poems?" And he............................nodded.

But what do IIIII know about poetry? [Debatably] less than I know about love!! So, dear friends, dear lovers who might love love poems, send me some good ones? Just like that one that's always gotten to you and also is probably so fundamentally human, it cuts deep enough to touch even the toughest, most disengaged 11th-grade head which wavers above that round, wooden table for an hour every Monday, threatening to clunk into sleep. Please help me keep it upright."

So let's post our favorite love poems to help Fabian stay awake in class!
