About this title

Synopsis:

From eyes first meeting to sweet good-byes, and every loving moment in between, June Cotner tracks a lifetime of love through poetry and prose. The poems collected here approach love from every perspective and at every stage--from the innocent, crush-induced longings of a 13-year-old girl to the ethereal musings of 13th-century poet Rumi.

Love. It has forever inspired poets, and those touched by its power and grace still find new words to celebrate it. Nothing moves the spirit or the pen of the poet quite like love.

Author June Cotner has long been fascinated by the course of the lifetime relationship between husbands and wives: from the electric sizzle and wild imaginings of love's beginning through the early years of marriage, filled with discovery and grand dreams of the future, and ultimately till the day we part, still in love and grateful for the lifetime companionship.

In Forever in Love, Cotner has collected her favorite love poems and arranged them in chapters set as mileposts in love's long journey. Beginning entries include "The Search," "Attraction," "Longing," and "Courtship." The middle chapters include "Commitment," "Early Years," and "Daily Life," and the book closes with poems gathered under the headings of "Partings" and "Reflections."

Cotner's selections for this compendium are as inspired as the words themselves. Classic writers such as Dickinson, Shakespeare, and Browning lend well-loved words, but this broad-ranging collection draws most of its content from poets writing today, assuring that every reader will discover many new gems to share with one's partner.

From the Author:

The selections in FOREVER IN LOVE are a result of years collecting poems about love and marriage that touched me emotionally. When you say "I do," it is intended to be forever, and that's what we all want - a "forever" bond. Really, marriage is a perfect concept: Two individuals become partners, best friends and allies for the rest of their days. While our society tends to idealize the love-lust of a new relationship, it's the true love of a long-term, committed relationship that is the ultimate dream for most of us. I hope this book will help couples realize that even during difficult times love creates bonds that will strengthen them in ways beyond what they could have only imagined when first married. Within these pages, you'll find an inspiring blueprint of the richness yet to come.

FOREVER IN LOVE follows the path from "The Attraction" to "Mature Love" and many stages in between. It's a book that will allow couples to reminisce about earlier years together and look forward to the days to come.

My hope is that you will be moved, awed, and astonished by the kaleidoscope of feelings so eloquently expressed by the contributors of this book. The poets represented here have a fine gift for the interplay of words and emotions about the voyage through love and marriage. -June Cotner
