I Love Sweet Tender, Kisses That Beg More

Sonnet Doubles.... I Love Sweet Tender, Kisses That Beg More I seek not perfection nor world's bright gold in my waking, I beg pardon from thee each new day, across fertile fields I strode I drink black coffee, add honey from bees never shall will I cry, nor stoop to beg race I sun's shadows on my wooden legs. I found no solace, no peace given free life failings, have this heart torn asunder proud the green forest, splendid its oak trees night's dark bring on its lightning and thunder never shall this soul, decaying flesh eat I walk in circles on my two left feet. I love sweet tender, kisses that beg more. May hope's gems render, mercy shore to shore. Robert J. Lindley, presented 7-18-2020 Sonnet, ( What Youth Found In Dawn's Waking And Night's Glow ) ************** Dawn's New Born Rays Woke Us Still In Loving Embrace I sought sensuality of a princess fair Night of golden moon and cool winds to make my play One with beauty and sweetest treasures to then bare Of spirit, romantic heat not afraid to share. Youth gave eternal hope, life its deep mystery Summer sent an angel, her lips soft and divine She of magnificent grace, Spanish ancestry Willing to meet under soft moonlight to be mine. " That love may deepest depths so yield ". Passion's fruits from Eden's first field. Life gave, together we partook of its desserts Dawn's new born rays woke us still in loving embrace We had yet to face dark world and its many hurts Rising to meet future, loving smile on each face!
