The very first poem ever found was a love poem. Named The Love Song of Shu-Sin, it was discovered during an excavation in what was then Mesopotamia. Before this discovery, The Song of Songs (also called the Song of Solomon) from the Old Testament was considered the oldest love poem. Other famous poets who wrote about love included the Arabic writer Ibn al-Rumi in the thirteenth century, William Shakespeare in the sixteenth century, and more contemporary poets such as William Butler Yeats, Langston Hughes, Pablo Neruda, and Sylvia Plath.
