#18 (“A day of peace with Paul. . .”)


                        A day of peace with Paul dost feed my soul;

                        A moment to remember—calm and quiet.

                        It is so frequent, not measur’d on dole;

                        Emotions tranquil, joy, not days in riot.

                        I long to tell him love that grows and grows

                        To depths anew with ev’ry passing day.

                        His love for me doth free my heart and sows

                        A seed of faith in Love—so bright, a ray

                        Of manmade sun it ‘tis for sure, with glare

                        That lifts my spirit high with flights of joy.

                        To tell how much I love is good; I dare

                        To say the depths are best—no wish for coy.

                                    If we do love as two are One in peace,

                                    Our life contract renew’d be oft the lease.

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.
