Introduction

The unchanging nature of humanity. How do the poems in the anthology reflect the different forms of loves? This essay demonstrates how love is and always has been a risky and varied emotion.

Out of both of these poems the most romantic and loving has got to be The Sun Rising because it expresses his feelings for his girlfriend and nothing can really go wrong with their relationship.
