Beautifully written, expressing perfectly the continuity of love. Separation by distance or death, it matters not...for love is kept safely within every memory and moment. At our weakest, or even at times of achievement...we need the connection to our love. Unbeknownst to us, as we share our lives with one another...our senses are creating a collection of memories for our hearts...promising that we shall never truly be alone. Our senses are the keepers and dispensers of creativity...to allow for our loves and lives to be eternal, through art, poetry and song. I am impressed, always, by the depth of your words. Thank you for sharing...
Soft smiles for you...

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.

The concept of love you have expressed is ethereal,eternal, and universal. So refreshing to read a lovely poem in a traditional format. Also, I prefer your references to the natural world, rather than to the physical human body. (which so many other poets write so specifically about!) May the mythical 'US' be forever blessed.

oh I suppose it is with lovers..that every waking moment is consumed in loving thoughts and every midnight dream... a fantasy come true. How perfectly expressed in this double sonnet of yours! The love is just oozing from this piece and spilling over...Ahhhh that golden touch..and yes! that is what it feels like.." a pull."..and whispers always light a flame..ok..I LOVE this!!!!!!...within my soul soar.....omgoodness..I need to hear this poem spoken....this one ya just need to close your eyes and let the word song soak in...loving the comparisons between nature/love. Some things don't change, the wind will blow, mist on mountain tops, mornings golden hue...as long as there is a Earth...these lovers are bonded to each other. love is all around and is felt deep within. Somethings, as in true love...never change!!!! LOVE LOVE OMG LOVE it!!!...I know you want me to comment on all the technical stuff..Later, I simply want to read this again.
