Thank you for visiting this blog.
I have been writing sonnets for a long time, emulating my college study of William Shakespeare and John Donne. In 1999, I started a series of love sonnets to my husband, which he has agreed for me to post. Later on, I will post divine sonnets, a few of them; and sonnets written to friends, a few of them. But most of my sonnets are love sonnets, and they are one of my best ways to talk to my husband.
My public email is as follows:
The painting is of John Dee, astrologist, before Queen Elizabeth I and her court. It is entitled, “John Dee Performing an Experiment before Elizabeth I,” and was painted by Henry Gillard Glindoni (1852 – 1913). I selected this image in honor of Elizabethan poetry, which my sonnets emulate.
I welcome your comments, either on the blog or in my email. Thank you.
