                        Ye are the best of life for me all day.

                                    I thank o’r Heav’ for sending you to me.

                                    I do thee love eternity ye 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.
