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…

Scornfully

the great lady

gave the poor traveller

straw

to sleep on.

At daybreak she

gathers it up

crying.
