#33 (“I love you, Paul. . .”)


                        I love you, Paul, for all the times we share.

                        You are my beacon sure in good and bad.

                        O’r times do feel most good—say “Best!” I dare?

                        My time was bless’d when meet we did.  As lad

                        I wish I had met you—the one for me!

                        Since late we met we must make up o’r time,

                        So two become as one—yea, this I see!

                        Accept my love in this a sonnet rhyme.

                        I long to be the perfect wife for you!

                        Do tell me when I err in deeds I do;

                        I wish no more my deeds to mourn and rue.

                        My resolution clear, “No fuss!”—foresoo’

                                    A happy woman have ye made me true.

                                    Be good to me: Your love is such a coup!

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.

  1. Hello Celia, it’s lovely to have a chance to connect with you. I wanted to send you an Email, though I couldn’t find one, so this is the only way I can think of. You have such a gift with writing your sonnets, they are beautiful. You are a lady so full of love, it’s a pleasure to read them. What an amazing tribute to your husband. I’ve been wanting to connect with you for awhile now as you “liked” a website that my friend is helping me set up, “Faith Holds the Key”, and I wanted to thank you for that. My name is Val Fabian and I live in Australia. And isn’t it amazing how technology helps us to connect with lovely people from the other side of the world, who we would otherwise never have even heard of. But luckily, it is now a means of instant communication from one corner of the globe to another, very exciting times for all of us. Thank you again Celia, you are definately one very special lady. xx
