My Fondest Prayer


My dear Lord, One Who gives an Answer true:

I came to You with open arms today.

Straight way ye cured my heart of mood so blue.

I do so thank You—sure!  What more I say?

“Tis best to sit all quiet, in prayer, foresooth!

Ye know what words I’d say when words do fail.

Ye know I follow You, intent like Ruth

Who follow’d Naomi through hill and dale.

Yea, follow You the same.  Cannot ev’n live

Without Your Love.  Impossible to think!

When ye do pour out Love, and to me send

Your blessings, I bow way low, all mild and meek.

I need Ye, God, my fondest prayer recite.

I reach for You, in Love, with all my might.

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.
