To a Friend

          Ye wise and splendid birthday girl, today

           A milestone we do see for you indeed.

           Mind sound, a frisky body, joyous ray

           Of happiness ye show as ye do lead

           O’r groups in books to read or words to write.

           A leader born ye are, my blessed friend.

           A joy to all, someone of bliss–ye light

           The way for younger souls, be friend or kin.

           Ye are a beacon bright, a kindred soul.

           Your ways do call to me to emulate.

           A woman wise with spirit warm, n’er cold.

           ‘Tis hard to say how high I do ye rate.

                A day of joy we wish for you, my dear.

                Friends do surround ye with deep love sincere.

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.
