Love's Mystery (Saraband Sonnet (Spanish/French combination))
Why should you mean so much to me?
In all this world, it is you alone
who fills my heart with love’s decree.
In winter’s wind your love is shown
a ray of sun, a warm embrace,
the mystery of passion grown,
where silk and roses interlace.
Why you and not another heart,
can lose my senses with one glance
but then you’ve had me from the start.
A single word, desire’s romance,
as odes of love our lives enhance,
like magic from a wishing-well
your heart has wrapped me in its spell.
