As you have Mentioned the details make all the difference. The sonnet is beautifully staged.
The sonnet itself is outstanding! Shakespeare would be proud! The message is so heart warming and it speaks of love in a way that speaks true over all generations even though it's in a style of past...the imagery is divine and I want to read it again and again to make it last!
It's one of those reads that warms the soul! Well done as always! You have a talent and ability to write in so many different styles! It's inspiring and encourages and reminds me to challenge myself. LOVE THIS ONE!

Superbly romantic write! Heartfelt emotion in every stanza. Your words flow with a soft gentle cadence and the message is enchanting. So lovely, Richard. Lydi**

Wow. Couldn't help but fall for how simple yet deeply moving this is. The first four lines are something that personally got to me. All in all a captivating sonnet. Glad to read something like this.

Graceful, lyrical, exquisite sonnet. Beautiful form, flow, cadence, rhyme and natural imagery. Striking musicality. "When finches build their nests"...gentle, tender words brilliantly expressing the many ways the poet's love is manifested. Absolutely superb. Master Class work!

This was one of the first poems I ever read from You, I didn't forget it, and I think I still even remember my "one sentence" review at that time, it is to me one of Your bestest if not the best one till now.

Lucky her, I would say, because these words are not "normal" words, nor this poem is a "normal" poem about Love, but more like... a life lived with Love described in each line, more like timeless words written with the eternity breath, with the bliss deepest gentlest sigh, with heavenly lights pressed from Gods above, with nature trembles to the sense of this holy divinity, with the throb that quvires through earth splitting the skies, with the "bless" essence, I don't think this was written only from Your soul core, but more from Love core itself, the incarnation of Love in this one piece, an impact over the eternal time and glory.

It's hard enough to write a sonnet, but you've given us a double, and that's remarkable. It's presented beautifully, flawlessly. I admire so much the thought and effort you put into each poem, and its presentation. "Beautiful" seems to be the quintessential word to describe everything you've published. Just one question about the first line of the second stanza, should it be you, or your?

"No problem"?
Oh, thank goodness … that's the last thing I'd want to be for you. 😊
This defines you, Richard. My favorite line:

"So, think not every from thee I'll be led"

First of all, because it's a promise. Second, it's the most contrary sentence I ever read that made sense: think not (don't think) ever from thee I'll be (that I won't be there). The words at first glance appear all backwards, but they're NOT! This is poetry...this is the element of poetry that eludes me, the twisting of words that might seem to contradict, but don't. My brain is too straight line to compose such, but I'm amazed and delighted to read it.

Always My pleasure sir
i enjoyed the way you painted Love here. It's like I am transported to an earlier time yet can FEEL the emotions as if today. It's such a deep love and not traditionally sappy early one, more an -across lifetimes, soul sharing love.
