Edward Hirsch Love Poems

  • 1.
    The nights were long and cold and bittersweet,
    And he made a song for the hell of it.

    She stood by the window, a heavenly light
  • 2.
    You're sitting at a small bay window
    in an empty café by the sea.
    It's nightfall, and the owner is locking up,
    though you're still hunched over the radiator,
  • 3.
    Tonight when I knelt down next to our cat, Zooey,
    And put my fingers into her clean cat's mouth,
    And rubbed her swollen belly that will never know kittens,
    And watched her wriggle onto her side, pawing the air,
  • 4.
    I am so small walking on the beach
    at night under the widening sky.
    The wet sand quickens beneath my feet
    and the waves thunder against the shore.
  • 5.
    Tonight I want to say something wonderful
    for the sleepwalkers who have so much faith
    in their legs, so much faith in the invisible
