Of Love I Find

On this, a year begun afresh, anew,

I pray for Love, peace, joy, tranquility.

I do not say nor speculate my due.

‘Tis right of God to measure and to see.

Ye mean us well in Love, my Father God;

This I do know from depth of heart within.

No need, my Lord, to quell my deeds with rod,

For chasteneth was rule in time of sin.

Now do I know that innocence prevails.

My faults I take to You, and find forgiven:

Wind at my back, my boat unfurls its sails.

My course is plotted out for me in Living.

So now Ye wish me well, blessings e’er more.

Of Love I find, I need no more implore.

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.
