"Two Loves" is a poem by Lord Alfred Douglas, published in 1894. Douglas's 1892 poem "Two Loves", which was used against Wilde at the latter's trial, ends with the famous line that refers to homosexuality as the love that dare not speak its name.

It was mentioned at Oscar Wilde's gross indecency trial, and it is classically interpreted as a euphemism for homosexuality.
