Poems about Love

Love is a smoke
by William Shakespeare

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs;
Being purg'd. a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;
Being vex'd, a sea norish'd with lovers' tears;
What is it else? A madness most discreet,
A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.
Romeo and Juliet, Act I, I

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English poet.
