A love in verse

An Ideal Husband

Performed by

I feel my life blessed by your love 

I sit here in a radiant sun

Reminded of you, warmth above,

All round, with yours within made one.

And from a train, the Thames, the trees,

Appearing perfect in their grace

Share their lovely power to please

With the heaven of your face.

And even when I play my part

And hear (I hope!) the laughter swell

I tell the audience in my heart

“That laughter is for her as well”


Thanks to You

It’s like a hill I’m climbing

A heap – but not of slag

Church bells are nearby chiming...

Sonnet: Love that Has Cost Me Dear

How much my love for you has cost me dear

For love I have surrendered loneliness

The choice of life bereft of cheer...
