"Love Poems" contains lyrics on love begun and lost, understanding and the absence of it, jealousy, separation and love transformed by memory. Situations fraught with emotion are presented with startling simplicity and economy of language. Detachment informed by an awareness of mortality pervades some of these poems; some speak objectively of human frailty in relationships: "People use each other/as a healing for their pain." Amichai offers advice and describes nights of love and longing, interweaving images of the Judean landscape and personal experiences of love.
