About the Book

Love Poems-- is a collection of the finest love poems and thoughts by Frederick Douglas Harper. The author ingeniously organizes his poems into six sections of the book: (1) romantic poems, (2) nostalgic love poems, (3) sensual love poems, (4) poems on love lost, (5) poems on love restored, and (6) poems on love of family, children, friends, and nature. Harper's universal themes in his Love Poems-- are timeless and enduring for all humanity, and, thus, the book's reading and value will be priceless for years and generations to come. The wisdom, spirituality, and overall power of Harper's love poetry have been compared to Kahlil Gibran's redemptive love poems in his classic book, The Prophet.

In Love Poems--, Harper conveys therapeutic and educational messages to the reader through the insightful meanings in his creative verse and thoughts. He teaches the reader the significance of unconditional love, how to deal with lost love in a non-destructive manner, how to forgive and love again, the need to savor romance and romantic memories, and ways to understand and tolerate individual differences that can often threaten a loving relationship. Love Poems of Frederick Douglas Harper also includes precious nuggets in the form of brief inspirational thoughts on love and relationships, found in the last section of the book.
