Stephen Dunn


Everyone has their own idea of love. I can't sum love up into a word, sentence, or paragraph for everyone. Each person has their own experiences with love and each has a different meaning or definition for it. "Sweetness," by Stephen Dunn shows his take on love and an experience that changed his view on it. This poem is about how fragile love actually is and that love often won't last long.

"Just when it has seemed I couldn't bear one more friend waking with a tumor."
