Thou, full scented far, e'er that gently flows
as the fragrant air, it's pure perfume knows
caress this land, from East to shinning West,
like as sweet the voice that I love best,
breathing, breathes the warmth whilst I can,
in love's pure flight for my dear Ann,
her colours akin to Spring's fresh flowers,
burns bright, like rainbows love-lit showers
that gently bless, this green grateful earth,
sing such the praise of her own worth,
melodious spun, it's enchanted web so fair,
assuage the touch of thoughts that care,

thus fills the heart with feminine grace so rare,
bequeaths, abundant charms of love's own ware.

I agree with you, there is no better way to express love than through a sonnet..and an exquisite Sonnet this is too..You are a true poet, head and shoulders above anything I can write. hug purple heart
Thank you Odette for your kind words, but as I said to you once before, you are a modern E.B.B. in the hidden depth of your words. Again, thank you,
