Sonnet: To Love (Correct Version) - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

Love's soft kiss as heavenly wine
Leaves the glow in morning's ray
Engraved as yours and mine
Whispered secrets shared our day
Sweet our souls flower and chime
In promises kept to chance
We reach for somewhere in time
Embraced by a bewitching glance
For Venus mends or breaks hearts
'though flames enkindle our eyes
Eternity's magic touch imparts
And diamonds fade to azure sky
Upon the stars we cast our light
As clouds are chased by darkest night

    soft kiss of love

    Lorraine Margueritte, It is wonderful to see you rightfully honoured as Poem of the Day! Because PH originated in France, where Paris, the City of Love is located, I appreciate PH's continued commitment to promoting and showcasing Love, in a sort of extended Valentines Day! Your sonnet to love is a winner and garners a much-deserved 10! (Report)Reply
