I Acquiesce to Friendship

Your sensuous eyes render me a fool.
How clumsy I become within your mien.
I stutter, stumble trying to keep cool
While all the time envisioning a scene
Of you and I together palm in palm
As sun departs behind the hillside's face,
And in the blush of twilight I feel calm
Enough to kiss your lips with lover's grace. 
My heart would swell if only this were so,
If even in my dreams it would come true,
That you might sense within my smile aglow 
The awesome humble love I have for you.
One tiny glance of regard you impart 
Would be enough to satisfy my heart.

Oh! A sonate AND a love poems. I think we should sharpen our pencils and get ready for love poetry and sonates for next month. Write our own for those fun cards. Loved this one Connie. I can’t seem to write love poems. Sigh.

Thank you very much Geoffrey. I had an encounter with a boy who had a crush on me at 16. Have a wonderful New Year! : ) xxoo

New love is so vulnerable - both intoxicating and terrifying. You captured that so brilliantly in your sonnet, Connie. Thank you so much for sharing it with all the other romantics out there... it made me feel 19 again! ~ John

That was my intention John. I knew this poem would have equal meaning for both male and female genders. Our spirit never grows old...only our bodies. Have a blessed new year! : ) xxoo

A lovely sonnet which is very pleasant to read aloud. I did it twice and still feeling a fine romantic aftertaste on my lips. P.S.: Don't acquiesce, poetess. Your friend, whoever he is, does not understand his happiness)

Classical romantic love sonnet ... one someone would love to find on Valentine’s day. I love how you captured that awkwardness of fresh love and that desire to be noticed ... without being so obvious. To wonder if love could be found but fearing it could not. Nicely done!

Thank you Edlynn. When we become older and wiser it is easy to look back on that shyness of youth in amusement. So nice to hear from you. xxoo

I think many of us can relate to these feelings Paul, especially in our youth when we are too shy to reveal our true sentiments. I so appreciate the Fave and your wonderful comment. Blessings xxoo

Thank you Jan. I learned how to write a sonnet from Andrea and others here who are great at it. They are a bit of a challenge still. There are so many who do feel like this, I agree. I have been very busy last few days preparing for company for Thanksgiving. Blessings xxoo
