Best for: Weddings; letting a woman know you think she's great. It opens: She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) by EE Cummings (1894 - 1962) Perhaps the only Harvard poet to make his way into the lyrics of indie-rock band Bloc Party, the … [Read more...] about From Walt Whitman to Carol Ann Duffy: The 12 best love poems

LOVE Island's Eyal Booker revealed Megan Barton Hanson isn't a good kisser at The Love Island final party last night. The 23-year-old reality star took a swipe at Wes Nelson's girlfriend at The Sun's exclusive bash and said her smooching skills failed to impress him.

The Yorky Corkies, as was Georgia and Elsie's team name, were facing three other teams to take on a range of challenges: including creepy night treasure hunts, obstacle races, and the tricky life of living among goats in an Australian campsite. But Georgia tried to get herself a catchphrase to make her the most memorable of the competitors - but sadly this didn't quite go to plan. In an awkward clip, Georgia told her mate she was going to "slash it," meaning "smash it," which led to a hilarious confusion between the duo. She said: "We;re gonna slash it." Elsie turned to her and asked: "What does slash mean?" Georgia, feeling confident, … [Read more...] about Here’s Love Island’s Georgia breaking into TV on a kid’s gameshow at just 13
