#29 (“My Paul, Sweetheart. . .”


                        My Paul, Sweetheart, I thank you for my watch.

                        Great Christmas present it was, oh yes—joy!

                        I knew what ‘twas so soon as saw the box.

                        Weakness I have for watches—yea!  “Oh, boy!”—

                        I said to self when first I saw the case.

                        My thanks to you are great, my dear, sweet love.

                        You see, I love you true in heart, my base—

                        You are the meaning fine to me, my dove.

                        Yea, in my life I do see lots to share.

                        You make it all worthwhile in joy and peace.

                        You give me ballast to see life with care—

                        A bit of joy alway’ doth give the lease.

                                    I love for life when long for you, my dear.

                                    You walk ahead in life; I bring up rear.

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.
