#26 (“If write I wish for praise of Paul. . .”)


                        If write I wish for praise of Paul, my love—

                        I need not to read how to write the best.

                        ‘Tis true I sit upon the sofa cove,

                        While he dost work on end across or rest.

                        This spot is joy to me for sure, with cat

                        Nearby for comfort more—idyllic scene.

                        This spot is best in all the world I’ve sat;

                        For sure my sights are train’d, my eyes are keen.

                        I bless the God that made this scene complete.

                        The Sabbath it be now—this day the best.

                        I do not choose forget this scene in Lethe;

                        This scene is sacred, all forget the rest.

                              My love for Paul grows great just more and more;

                              My bliss complete when two do close the door!

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.
