There are many ways to tickle your lover’s fancy with funny love poems for him from all different cultures and traditions. You can write your own hilarious versions of poetry borrowing some starting lines from the famous masterpieces like Elizabeth Barrett Browning, “How do I love thee…let me count the ways.” Or try a love sonnet in Shakespearean English. You can also write in the style of classical Chinese poetry using a simple quatrain or four lines to make your lover laugh or you can draw from the ribald sensibilities of the Irish limerick. You know what will appeal to him best.
No matter what type of funny love poems for him that you want to write, you should keep a sense of humor and don’t worry too terribly about grammar or even rhyming. E.E. Cummings made an entire career off of unconventional spelling and grammar, so you could write something like this and still get his blood pumping…a blending of a few poetic styles:
To thine own self be true
He heard a bird that flew
And so he stuck out his tongue
Expecting from the sky
A nectar tasting better than p oo ooo oooo
Much to my sweet lover’s dismay
Instead of the nectar of rain this day
The bittersweet taste of the bird’s own brain
Landed straight on his HEAD, then he flew
So the moral of the story is my love, that if you want to taste rain from the air
Wait until the pigeons fly past or they will certainly dirty your hair.
You could continue the poem and discuss other nectars of love that your love might want to taste more. In any case, your short funny love poems for him should be silly, sweet, raunchy and ribald, light-hearted or romantic, but never too serious as this could put him off.
Here is another funny love poem for him from the Classical Chinese and Irish Limerick style combined:
Quatrain for Man of Mountain
This man speaks to cloudless sky
His feet stand firm in roots and rock
His manliness is such like thunder
I am soon to drop my simple frock.
You’ll make him smile with your creative attempt at affectionate poetry. When you are writing funny love poems for him, you can stuff them in his sock drawer or place them on his car windshield so he gets a little laugh before starting his ‘very serious’ business day. Sometimes it helps to get a man laughing to ease the burdens of his tedious day, and funny love poems are a great way to do it. Just be original and heart-felt. He will appreciate every word.
