From the Romantic and Victorian poets by whom so many of us know a romantic poem is written, "Marriage Morning" Alfred Lord Tennyson is a prime example of this type of poem birthday wife would surely love to receive. Describing the interminable nature of love, Tennyson describes marriage as the culmination of his life's work.
Emily Bronte's poem "Love and Friendship", while never directly speaking of marriage "describes the intertwined nature of love and friendship and how they eat each other, creating a strong entity and a short poem. Generating a simple image of a rose shrub and tree holly comingling, but speaks volumes of the love she had for her husband and family.
