#32 (“My Sweet’, ’tis time again to say my love. . .”)

 

                        My Sweet’, ‘tis time again to say my love

                        For you: the happiest of Valentine’s

                        I wish for you—my all, my joy, my “dove.”

                        Lovebirds are doves, you see, and you are mine!

                        May peace and joy and love shine all the year

                        On you and me.  A pair of doves we make

                        In truth, my Sweet’, my all, my love, my Dear.

                        On St. Val’s Day we will enjoy a cake!

                        ‘Tis true that sweets you love, my Sweet’ you are.

                        ‘Tis good to know how pleas’d ye be with me.

                        I like to hear, “I love you true”—just bar

                        The door to other loves—then me you see!

                                    I love thee true in years of time, us two;

                                    I love thee true for sure, my Sweet’, n’er rue!

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.
