Valentine’s Day Poem For One Night Stand

In recent days I’ve offered ideas for Valentine’s Day poems for a lover who is lying to you, for breaking up, and for one’s wife.

Here’s a poem for if you want to write a Valentine’s Day poem to a one night stand you shared a brief time with. It is from India and was written about 1900 years ago. It’s author is anonymous.

The poem is called Scornfully. Maybe it will give you some thoughts for your poem for your one nighter…


the great lady

gave the poor traveller


to sleep on.

At daybreak she

gathers it up

  1. One nighters could never be spiritually fulfilling. Not even for a man, I bet. This poem made me sad for the lady and for all the others left feeling empty after a one-night stand.

  2. Yes, I would pretty much agree with this comment. And yet, who knows what may inspire someone to a poem.
