Not a Sonnet II: Love’s Consideration

‘Tis best to give the other “slack,” I hear;

‘Tis best not give the other tension tight.So easy be it to complain a bit when life seems hard to me, you, Dear.

Yet choose I not to scorn or cry at all for blessings great demand no bite.

We are among the few I know who love most strong without respite nor slack.

O’r love—‘tis right!

I wish to have you know, my Paul, my Dear,

That love I on and on and on—out’ sight.

We do forgive in daily life, you see—

You, too, give “slack” in ire oft’ time to me.

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.
