At Easter time I first did meet my love
She came to me one night when it was spring
Descended, so it seemed, from high above
She sang a song that she alone could sing
At first my mind was riven, filled with fear
My feelings clouded by a troubled mind
But then her love it shone so bright and clear
I knew that it was love, oh yes, and kind
So I surrendered to her phantom charm
Embraced her love so simple, so sincere
I knew this love would never cause me harm
The light that shone from her was bright and clear
At Easter time I felt the fire of life
That ended with my taking of a wife
A sonnet of finding love at Easter time!
Thank you, Valdis, for this fine spring love sonnet, which is charming indeed! Valdis lives in the UK, and since his retirement dedicates most of his leisure time to his artwork, including the image used to illustrate this post. Further examples of his work can be found at Instagram.
