Not only does the picture of these love birds compliment your work here their colors reflect it as well. This is a wonderful peice.

I am genuinly impressed with this poem! The passion, the imagery, the feeling... One of the best love poems I've read in ages. Your use of old style, antiquated English makes it a "retro" style love poem... Clever!

Thank you sheppaja, glad you liked.

Very good Kenny, that's exactly what I'm doing. These love Sonnets are personal poems, they were not intended for public review when I wrote them. These are written to my girlfriend back in the day. I purposely used cliches' and archaic language for familiarity and effect. Some of the earlier poems I'd written her were not clear and occasional misunderstandings occurred. I began writing these simple, familiar poems to eliminate those misunderstandings. This particular poem is a play on EB Browning's, "How do I Love Thee" , which uses archaic language and I wanted to reflect that. Many people see cliche' as a bad thing. They don't understand that what is familiar is not always trite. The point of avoiding cliche' is about not being overly trite and I do agree that a novice, writing for public review, should avoid them.
