Fortitude, No Cushion


I thank Ye, my dear God, for health abound’.

“Tis not a thing to take so lightly ev’r.

“Tis proof, I think, that more to do all round

Is in Ye will for me, so say, I dare?

Keep me in earth, my blessed God in deeds

That honor You with Love and peace and joy.

Do stay by me.  Without You we slight reeds

Are constantly.  I need ask no more.

I say to Ye in humble word alway’.

I ask Ye Presence feel, so keen, so sharp.

I dedicate my time, my hands, my day

To Ye as seek e’ermore to do my part.

I dedicate my health to Ye good wish.

I ask for strength in fortitude, no cush’.

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.
