A SONNET

This was the first love sonnet I ever wrote. I had just discovered the meaning of iambic pentameter, finally!

If I but wrote a single verse of love

The moon would guide my hand and use her shine

To light the path on which my quill must move

To captivate your heart and make you mine

I’d pen the words describing your fey smile

And write of skin the texture of a faun

Of eyes that lift a man to heaven’s mile

Soft hair that puts to shame a summer’s morn

A touch to lift me up to untold heights

To dream about the magic in your kiss

Should I convince you that my troth is right

Our hearts will meld forever in love’s bliss

I have not riches, yet my words are true

I write this verse especially for you
