Love Among the Poetry Stacks

(Image: public domain) 

You're browsing through the shelves of the poetry section at the library. As you select an ancient book of love poems, a note falls to the floor.  It is folded into fourths, and yellowed with age. You uncrease it carefully, and settle in to read, discovering it's an old love letter. 

What does it say? Was it ever sent? Tell the story behind the letter. 


  1. Love this post. I wrote a post once about the scribblings I used to find in old books, especially those bought in second-hand bookshops. A love letter? I bet it was for someone fighting in a war. Any war. You take your pick.

    Greetings from London.

    1. Greetings, Cuban In London! Thank you for your kind comment. Write us a story! :) (Or even the link to the post you mentioned. Would love to read it.)

  2. I finally did one of these, De. You can find it here:
