Love Sonnet

Well, Shakespeare wrote lots of love sonnets, so I thought maybe I should try my hand at it.

Anyone who wants to copy this down to share with your true love...

You're welcome to it. :)

Not even springtime roses e'er could tell
This miracle of love beyond compare,
So I'll recount a tale I love so well,
A metaphor that shows the love we share.
Last week I took a trip for several days,
But left the coffee filter full of grounds,
On my return, what met my startled gaze
Was white and gruesome mold spread all around.
How strange that mold should thus succeed!
From nothing and from nowhere it arose.
And thus our love (astonishing in speed,
Miraculous in strength) so swiftly grows.
And now, on seeing mold and dank mildew,
I cannot help, my love, but think of you.
