Who hasn't written a love poem? Boys and girls write them on paper scraps passed among friends. They are written in diaries, never to be shared, and on pages never sent but read again and again by the one who wrote them. Love is what we write both before and after everything else. Our letters are love poems. Our TV soaps, our films and our songs are love poems. When MTC Cronin writes of love it is with the seductive tongue of the poet and urgent heart of a lover. Her collection is for anyone who has loved, who loves or who wants to be in love, here and now.
