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!

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.

Thank you ever-so warmly, Dear April,
Your beautiful words, a love poem in themselves.

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.
