Frank Poems: LOVE LETTER/S

The Love Letter by William Strang, R.A. c. 1912. Oil on canvas. 30 x 25 in. (76 x 63.5 cm). The Victorian Web.


All love letters are rubbish,
I read somewhere
(Which doesn’t mean
all rubbish letters are lovely,
just to be clear).

So when I write “I love you”,
That’s rubbish! you might well think
but it’s just this unlovely letter that’s rubbish,
not my love, my dear.


I sent you an L,
I wrote you an O,
I left you a V,
I emailed an E

but when will you ever
send a letter to me?
