Whether you've got a hot date or you're your own date this Valentine's Day, you might want to get into a romantic mood with some steamy poems. Cosmopolitan has compiled a list of some of the most fan-yourself poems written by classic poets like Emily Dickinson and Adrienne Rich. Snippets of poems are provided but you can always look up more once you know who to look for.
You can always write your own poetry to give as a gift or enjoy on your own, of course. It's not difficult, but there are some tried and true steps you can start with if you need a place to begin.
