#60 (“O’r age a state of mind. . .”)

                        O’r age a state of mind alone, it is.

                        As long as young we feel, so young we are.

                        Today I do present thee with a kiss.

                        Together we have gone so very far.

                        I love thee so, my dear, my Sweet’ delight

                        In truth I speak to thee just now, today.

                        Together we do seek to do the right.

                        (My aim has reach’d thee–yes, this I do say.)

                        Be glad to celebrate, my dear, my spouse.

                        O’r motto says it true:  Grow old with me;

                        The best to be.  We go the way, the bounce

                        Of ball ev’ry day. So flexible we be.

                                    To you I do salute today, alway’

                                    I love thee full and strong, this day I say.

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.
