Famous Short Jean Valentine Poems. Short poetry by famous poet Jean Valentine. A collection of the all-time best Jean Valentine short poems


by Jean Valentine
 Jane is big
with death, Don
sad and kind - Jane
though she's dying
is full of mind

We talk about the table
the little walnut one
how it's like
Emily Dickinson's

But Don says No
Dickinson's
was made of iron.
No said Jane Of flesh.

by Jean Valentine
 Late have I called &
late my 
beloved 
was blessing me 

I was covering 
my breasts with my arms 

 "Those doves" 
 you said 

In the sun I took my arms away

by Jean Valentine
 So what use was poetry
to a white empty house?

Wolf, swan, hare,
in by the fire.
And when your tree crashed through your house, what use then was all your power? It was the use of you.
It was the flower.
