Sonnet - I (O Shall You Love Me Through My Mellowed Years)

O shall you love me through my mellowed years
When I am no more as the rising sun
As less my visage to your heart endears -
The sweetness age thus ever has undone
And wilt thou fix your smile upon my face
Enjoin your fingers with my weathered hand
Then in your arms yet tenderly embrace
As if my life all time had never spanned
Or shall the years so meet with your disdain
As when you look upon this ag'ed brow
O shall you not see beauty there again
Or know once more the joys that youth endow
I pray that love may ever so endure
Unblemished by the years forever more

    softly speaks the trials of love's refrain
    what's bound by youth may wizened age retain.

    A very beautiful and warm sonnet, written by a warm and beautiful poet, Val.
    I love the words forevermore.....such deeply felt meaning it does endure....

    dear Valerie, I believe true love will love always,
    but finding true love isn't so easy...fabulous write!

    A fine sonnet, and as explored the heart sees that which it desires, and in seeing, enduring love is oblivious to that desired in youth realising it is only truely endowed by maturity. A lovely classic structure and form.
