Patricia, I re-use other people’s Medium poetry (with attribution! don’t want my wife thinking I’m more romantic than I really am) on various occasions. Today it was

for my Valentines Day card to Deb. I’ve also used Anna Breslin, Heath Houston, and Mike Essig. And those are just the folks I’ve borrowed from almost word-for-word, since there are plenty others (ones you mentioned!) who do great romantic works.
