#77 (“My Paul, my Dear, I love thee well indeed. . .”)

My Paul, my Dear, I love thee well indeed.

Ye know this well indeed also, my Sweet’.

Let’s make o’r life a-blossom, things to lead

Us into happiness so full and deep.

I n’er do tire of telling you my love.

I find great joy in telling of my love.

Ye be a pleasure alway’, sure, my Dove.

I find o’r time so like to Heaven above.

Let’s keep o’r love so fresh and sweet, and kind,

That we alway’ have blessing in its wake.

I say to ye in verse, this verse, of rhyme.

For permanence in life with ye, love’s sake.

          I love thee good and full and pure.

         For love like this, my Sweet’, there be no cure!

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.
