Poem Title:  Poet To His Love

Poem Category:  Love Poems

Poet:  Maxwell Bodenheim

Poet Biography: 
Maxwell Bodenheim (1893-1954) was an American Poet who had a colourful life. His poetry is often cynical and dwells on the grotesque. Bodenheim slipped into alcoholism and poverty in the 1940s. In February 1954, he and his third wife were found murdered in a furnished room belonging to Harold Weinburg, who was found guilty of the murder but was discovered to be insane.



Poem: 
An old silver church in a forest
Is my love for you.
The trees around it
Are words that I have stolen from your heart.
An old silver bell, the last smile you gave,
Hangs at the top of my church.
It rings only when you come through the forest
And stand beside it.
And then, it has no need for ringing,
For your voice takes its place.
