#57 (“We must be sure to stay as one alway'”)

                       We must be sure to stay as one alway’.

                        No good to think. . .must be within o’r heart.

                        What joy we know as now we spend all day

                        In home alone, in place of peace n’er part.

                        I love thee sure and true–long time this true.

                        Do ye love me also, my Sweet’, my rock?

                        Ye keep me calm, serene.  I love, n’er rue.

                        Yea, rock ye be to me; my heart ye lock.

                        So day together we so see in peace.

                        Alway’ the peace and calm doth soothe my soul.

                        Please, Sweet’, today to give my lip a kiss,

                        And heart of each wilt n’er be hard nor cold.

                                    I love thee true for’er the more in truth.

                                    If ye love me, we be the best–foresooth!

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.
