Sonnets Are Full Of Love

Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart's quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she my loadstare while I go and come
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honoured name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.

by Christina Georgina Rossetti

" whose heart is my heart's quiet home, " Shakespeare used this type of repetition to great effect. The rhythm and the sound make this a true sonnet with more than just fourteen lines of verse.
........a wonderful poem of love ★
Indeed love transcends everything and eternal!
A marvelous wreath of rhymes woven to crown the most loving memoirs of Mother. Thanks for sharing it here.
