A sweet poem on what love feels like, this reading sums up that warm fuzzy feeling with a steady stream of lighthearted comparisons. Fish and chips? You can bet that makes us feel loving.

Love Is

by Adrian Henri

Love is…
Love is feeling cold in the back of vans
Love is a fanclub with only two fans
Love is walking holding paint stained hands
Love is

Love is fish and chips on winter nights
Love is blankets full of strange delights
Love is when you don’t put out the light
Love is

Love is the presents in Christmas shops
Love is when you’re feeling Top of the Pops
Love is what happens when the music stops
Love is

Love is white panties lying all forlorn
Love is pink nightdresses still slightly warm
Love is when you have to leave at dawn
Love is

Love is you and love is me
Love is prison and love is free
Love’s what’s there when you are away from me
Love is…
