#53 (“Love ye do give to me alway'”)


                        Love ye do give to me alway’ my Sweet’

                        Love I do give to ye alway’, my Dove.

                        ’Tis best for us to live in joy, to keep

                        O’r twain as one in peace, in joy, in love.

                        I take delight in time with thee alway.

                        It is the best to me that life can bring.

                        O’r time tonight wilt be such fun this day

                        My hope for ye is full, my Sweet’, my king.

                        Know alway that ’tis ye I love in truth.

                        I find such joy in life with ye each day.

                        ’Tis long that we have been in love, foresooth          

                        ’Tis best the thing e’er to me been, I say.

                                    Keep joy and peace and love in heart for me.

                                    I to thee wilt keep same for thee, you see!

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.
