#2 (“My lover kind and gentle. . .”)


                        My lover kind and gentle ere with me;

                        He trips the light fantastic—strong, all way.

                        My Sweetie is a gem uncut, I see.

                        The largest diamond in rough shows ray

                        Magnificent in glow and flash of light;

                        A gem roughhewn is greater far not split,

                        With manly cadence, voice all strong, his might

                        Shines forth with force and freedom, joy, all grit.

                        I try n’er change this man of mine, my prize;

                        For change might chaos loose upon our house.

                        “I can stand all with you beside!” he cries;

                        I n’er would lose this paragon, nor oust.

                              We are two people steadfast, true and fast

                              To bind our hearts so love ‘twixt two doth last.

I have written both love and divine sonnets in the Elizabethan style for a long time. Now I am gradually adding them to a blog. Most are dedicated to my husband.
