#25 (“My Sweet’ is tired. . .”)


                        My Sweet’ is tired to bone, so weary he.

                        He sleeps in bed with cat beside, while write

                        I:  Love I feel ev’n though him I not see.

                        ‘Tis good to write of Love—makes world aright.

                        Much strain have we in past and now—o’r life

                        Is busy, harried, tough, I say—though less

                        So each other we do keep—not rife

                        With pressure that we make o’rselves, we rest.

                        We rest in peace—asleep is he, while I

                        Do write my sonnets, love the best, and rest

                        The peace we find in home of o’rs–not lie.

                                    Sleep on, my Paul, refresh the spirit, soul.

                                    Love we do make for each so much, no dole.

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.
