Sonnet - IV (Speak Truly If You Deem To Speak Of Love...)

Speak truly if you deem to speak of love
No falsehood should the gentle soul endure
Nor be deceived by words designed to move
If such are rendered by a heart impure
For truth should always be the lover's tool
To captivate and charm the one romanced
Let no-one seek to therefore be so cruel
To serve the heart thus which be sweet entranced
O let your words be tender and sincere
Proclaiming love thenceforth forever true
Such that the one beguiled you full endear
And bring her ever closer then to you
….. The heart enraptured thus will so remain
….. Forever in your keep and ne'er shall wane

    Word of love, sly tools, cruel hearts need employ
    their moments pleasure stealing years of joy.

    Fantastic, Valerie. love it. You follow these strict rules of sonnet poetry and it flows so well.
    It seems so natural. Most of all still the meaning of the poem is excellent. Lying to a loved one is very mch like lying to oneself. Truth is all imporant in any loving relationship. You know, Val, sonnet is italian for little song. I think this s a superb sonnet, a great little song.
