Writing a Love Sonnet

If only I could write you a sonnet, Iambic pentameter and what not, Let my muse mull profoundly upon it. I must write it quickly lest I forgot. It will have to stress real passion, love, Mention a rose if I really must But for heaven's sake leave out the white dove, Still do mention the red moon that I trust. Compare her eyes to some fragrant flower, And wish to taste her full strawberry lips, Scheme to meet her in a quiet bower, Clouds enfold us in mythical eclipse. Will she come, will she go, my marigold? Ah, my poor love sonnet has now gone cold. POTD 14 September 2020

"If only I could write you a sonnet" You did, my sweet friend. And she is out there somewhere, waiting for you as you wait to find her. When the time is right, you will find each other. This is beautiful in every way. Congratulations Victor, on Poem of the Day. :) Brandy
