#23 (“My Paul is company great. . .”)


                        My Paul is company great—I long to say;

                        He judges self too much, I think, for sure.

                        O’r even’g out are like the bless’d sun’s ray:

                        A time for fun, a time to reach and lure

                        The innermost in us and them, o’r friends.

                        We must not judge o’r times of rest with eye

                        So keen for error prone.  We need with lens

                        Of eye o’r twain to bless the Self—he, I.

                        For surely do we note that blame of Self

                        Leads other’ judge us two:  Accept o’rselves

                        With heartfelt surety and thoughts all deft.

                        Then peace and joy we find—not hearts all rev’d.

                              My Sweet’, you are a handsome, great, sweet host.

                              With you by side of me we are the “most.”

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.
