In celebration of National Poetry Month, I will be adding a section to my website on favorite love poems. So this week's contest is a breeze. Send me one of your favorite, classic love poems. When I say "classic", I mean that it was written by someone well-known, not just you, your sweetheart or grandmother. Along with the poem, include the title and the author. There are many places on the web where you can do your research to get the text (lovepoems.com is one place). The prize will be a copy of Bytes of Poetry, a Lovestories.com Anthology. I love this book for its lovely range of poetry. Check it out. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0967616204/theromantsguide Entries must be received by April 10.

T I P O F T H E W E E K ON YOUR MARK, GET SET... by Michael Webb There are stock car races and thoroughbred races, I prefer leaf races. One of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday afternoon is a picnic near a gurgling brook. After the wine, cheese, bagels and strawberries I'm ready to head off to the races. Athena and I each search for the perfect leaf - one that is light enough to float briskly along with the current and yet tough enough to survive the ravages of whirlpools and being tossed against boulders. If there are no leaves to be found sticks can be substituted. If you plan in advance you can spend a couple of dollars at the toy store and buy rubber ducks to race. Not only are these races wonderful for a couple, they are fun for the whole family. ................................................................... ~~~ Romantic Resources ~~~ Draw closer together with 1000 Questions for Couples at http://www.questionsforcouples.com/ Spice up your love life with 500 L.ovemaking Tips & Secrets http://theromantic.com/lovemaking.htm Discover 300 Creative Dates at http://theromantic.com/creativedates.htm 100 Bedroom Games for Couples http://theromantic.com/games.htm Learn the 50 Secrets of Blissful Relationships at http://www.50secrets.com/ There is A Better Way To Date http://theromantic.com/abetterway.htm Read about The Romantic's Guide to Popping the Question at http://www.howtoproposemarriage.com/ You can purchase Michael Webb's bestseller, The Romantic's Guide: Hundreds of Creative Tips for a Lifetime of Love, at bookstores nationwide, Amazon.com or BN.com .............................................................. ~~~ Who is Michael Webb? ~~~ He is: Athena's loving husband Father to Ashton and Ireland Best-selling author * The Romantic's Guide: 100s of Creative Tips for a Lifetime of Love * The Romantic's Guide to Popping the Question * 50 Secrets of Blissful Relationships * 50 More Secrets of Blissful Relationships * 300 Creative Dates * 1000 Questions for Couples * A Better Way to Date * 500 Lovemaking Tips & Secrets Founder, National Resurrect Romance Week (second full week in Aug) Syndicated Columnist, "TheRomantic.com Column" Romance/Relationship expert on over 500 TV/radio stations Founder, TheRomantic.com Founder, Love One Another Foundation Subscribe to Michael's other e-zine - send blank e-mail to the addresses Secrets of Blissful Relationships mailto:secrets-on@mail-list.com Or subscribe at http://theromantic.com
