Sunday Sonnet!

img_3930wp

Surprised by Pleasure, theretofore not sensed,
A gen’rous gift from daughter and her spouse
Cannot by Muse, Poetic, be condensed
Appreciation, profound, to arouse;
The dulcet tones of ombra mai fu
Conveyed us into ambience of peace,
Attentive Care thenceforth would see us through,
Like infants mollycoddled in lamb’s fleece;
From board to bed, our bodies, minds and souls
Imbibed the elixir of healing rare;
Eternally contented heart extols
Experience in life, beyond compare;
Forever shall these mem’ries, like fine gold,
Occasion gems of Gratitude untold!

Sunday Sonnet!

img_3834wp

A smiling stillness bathes the sunlit wood
Enhancing Autumn colours of the leaves,
As ramblers idly amble, feeling good,
Engaging flights of fancy none perceives;
Few bees, with butterflies, caress fair blooms,
Imbibing nectar, gathering fine spores
To place elsewhere, like dedicated grooms,
Transition oft accomplished without pause;
Attend, the charm of Nature to behold –
Let senses, all, the miracles embrace
And open souls be filled with joy untold,
Becoming of a gift of Divine Grace;
If wonder be the basis of all being,
Then ponder be the reason for all seeing!

For Vi!

With gratitude we celebrate her birth,
One hundred years ago on London’s earth,
A lady sweet and kind,
A Life for others, mind,
A treasure to be cherished for her worth.

Her gen’rous disposition knows no bound,
Her selfless caring nature rarely found,
Devoted to her son,
Concern for everyone,
Her life will to the general good redound.

May blessings now descend on dotage years,
Contentment save her from untoward fears,
Serenity embrace
Her fortitude with grace,
That at the end for her there be no tears!
