Mine Heart In Thine Hand

Fair is this pristine earth upon which thou stands With thy face t'ward the sun and mine heart held in thy hand On many a day, I am a quiet river flowing And I drink in thy laughter and windswept song How the twinkles within thine eyes set ablaze mine soul Thou art the sustenance which is required for life’s arduous toll As thou breathest in air, I pray thee, inhale all of me And place mine heart within thine for safekeeping with thee ~*~ 02/01/13

    Such beautiful sentiments. The use of older English gives it a nice flare. Great progression too. Thanks so much for your amazing comment!

    I love the Shakespearean style! The rhyme-scheme is divine. The words flow like a swift moving stream. The terms of endearment are titillating.
