Not a Sonnet: Love’s “Proof”


We two—you (Paul) and I—do have the best

Because we give to each the best of self.

My dad did say, “You two are good for one another”—you know the rest.

If I could place o’r love in rhyme and song I would, for sweet the note in clef.

We grew to love in time, a simple love but true—t’is best to love with calm

And peace—how deft!

O’r passion deep doth run n’r wane, for lest

We seek to prove o’r love, we aren’t bereft.

The proof is daily liv’d, I say to you;

N’er seek to prove what needs no proof, n’er rue.

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.
