Love poems come in so many shapes and sizes that oftentimes it is difficult to make heads or tails of them. Luckily, there is a simple but effective solution allowing categorizing them by people’s search interests in an intuitive and straightforward manner. This page provides a hierarchical breakdown of the most popular love poetry-related queries along with the approximate number of monthly searches in the US, making it considerably easier to navigate your way around the Internet looking for the right poem for your beloved.

As you can deduce from the title, the category-defining query itself is searched close to 32,000 times a month in the US alone; given that the whole gamut of longer-tail queries based on it is estimated at ~128,000 monthly searches, that makes roughly 25% of the total. Interestingly, according to Ahrefs, the number is these searches is declining:

Love Poems Search Volume Trend

Love Poems Search Volume Trend by Ahrefs

As you see from the picture, there is a clear downtrend for all such searches over the last 5 years in the US. Since the population of the country grew slightly in the same time period, this means that Americans are gradually losing interest in love poetry, likely substituting it with other stimuli. However, since you came to this page, you probably still haven’t given up on the subject and could benefit from the hierarchical lists with links comprised below on the basis of Ahrefs’ data.

Love poems for her (18,125)

This query sits at the top of the second-tier hierarchical groups boasting almost 15% of all queries related to our research subject (18,125 / 128,000). This should not come as a surprise: historically, men wrote poetry for the women they couldn’t live without; that is, up to the moment they died.

Poems about love (8,814)

Adding the extra preposition request an extra effort, so this version is sought almost four times less frequently (8,814 / 128,000). The longer-tail variations of this are much less popular, so when we finally get to rhyming at the end of the list the search volume becomes almost negligible.

Short love poems (4,389)

Somebody once said that brevity is the soul of wit, and people liked that so much the concept made it into love also. Here, the decline in search volume is more gradual, but there are also a lot fewer variations.

  • short love poems for her (1,162),
  • short love poems for wife (730),

Romantic poems (4,343)

It may be tempting to expect this query to be more popular, but this is not the case at all as it gets merely ~4,300 monthly searches. However, this is the only second-tier group that includes a fully-fledged third-tier category of its own.

  • romantic love poems (874),
  • romantic poets (850),
  • romanticism poems (150),
  • dark romantic poems (140),

  • romantic poems for him to make him cry (11).

Romantic poems for her (1,957)

Here is that third-level tier, a combination of the romantic and for her parts:

  • romantic love poems for her (264),
  • romantic poems for her to make her cry (183),
  • short romantic poems for her (132),
  • romantic birthday poems for her (115).

Love poetry (3,038)

It feels counterintuitive, but this close variation of the master query is searched about 10 times less often (3,038 vs. 31,726).

  • muse of love poetry (291),
  • what is poetry written in praise of a loved one’s physical beauty? blazon sonnet iambic quatrain (198),
  • lovecraft poetry (182),

  • love poetry quotes (8),
  • best love poetry (2).

Love poems for wife (2,889)

Some say romance dies with marriage, but others dismiss that attitude as cynical. In this group, the main query defines most of the search volume within the category, likely due to the husbands’ sharp focus on what’s truly important.

  • i love you poems for wife (199),
  • romantic poems for wife (119),
  • i love my wife poems (109),
  • love poems for wife from husband (104),
  • wife love poems (71),
  • love my wife poems (16).

I love you poems (1,570)

Call me an incorrigible optimist, but I do hope that at least some of the queries falling under this group reflect the enthusiasm people feel for poems themselves. An interesting thing to point out here is another precipitous drop to the first longer-tail query within the category (from 1,570 to 144). Also, one could expect that it would not be only brothers but also sisters mentioned here, which is clearly not the case.

  • i love you brother poems (144),
  • love you poems (116),
  • i love you mom poems from daughter (62),
  • i love you mom poems (49),
  • how much i love you poems (46),
  • why i love you poems (38),
  • i love you so much poems (21),
  • i love you poems for your boyfriend (12),
  • i love you with all my heart and soul poems (11).
