Why I Love CD's Poem: Comfortable Love

Author: Carolyn Devonshire
Submitted to Andrea Dietrich's uncontest 

Comfortable Love
Some painters challenge us with art abstract
We study them and speculate intent
My love, he takes the short route; it’s a fact
He speaks three words, no question what he meant

The intellectuals look for new ways
To speak of love in words no one has heard
Or verse for songs that no one ever plays
For love is truly greater than a word

His aqua eyes convey a heart that’s true
On chilly nights, his warm arms hold me close
No words he speaks, but do not misconstrue
When love is true, who needs the grandiose

We’ve learned to find peace in the quiet time
Together any steep path we can climb

Why this poem is my favorite poem by Carolyn Devonshire:
Carolyn and I shared a love for the sonnet form. I always enjoyed
reading her sonnets (she has 57 of them at Poetry Soup!) and she
was always supportive and encouraging when she commented on
mine. She wrote her sonnets with a graceful flow, and was always
conscientious about precision of rhyme and meter (an attribute
I greatly appreciate). Here she speaks of keeping love genuine and
simple with words from the heart. Her musings on love always feel 
personal and real. If you desire to read another sonnet by Carolyn, 
I would highly recommend one of my other favorites of hers, First Love. Thank you dear Carolyn, and may you rest in peace with God forever.

You are such a dear friend to all your poet friends. To think you actually knew the exact number of her sonnets and cared to tell us that. It speaks volumes to your caring nature and also your attention to details. I really love the sonnet of hers that you chose to portray the love in her soul. Thanks for contributing, john
