It Is I Who Loves Thee More Than The Sun




It is I who loves thee more than the sun

With fiery eyes and golden locks undone

No man presumes such tender gasp of breath

Such beauty could send my lungs to their death


Let’s not weep for sins, but rejoice each day

All the stars the moon and indeed the clay

Let not the weeping willow die so young

Saved the sweet honey from bee’s who have stung


Dusk until dawn, to your love I have clung

Dreaming of a world that sing songs unsung

I, who dies in the forest of your heart

It’s I whom will die in the forest dark


But wait no, I shall never lay me down

Thou shall be loved, to thee I take my bow.

                Great writing teddy 🙂

                A lot of beautiful words in this

                Liked the read ))

                I don’t often write about romance but maybe I should try

                really like how you have mentioned a lot of nature in this .. and you have used the word ‘ thee ‘ it kind of has an old fashioned feel to this ..

                Thanks for sharing 🙂

                • Teddy.15

                  Thank you so much, yes do write something on romance I'd love to read it ❤️

                • Neville

                  like I have said so many times before .. I have never dared to venture near a sonnet with other than my eyes .. and you have just reminded me of the quality of the competition I would be up against and I'm not sure my ego would be able to cope .. mightily impressed this here scribbler be ... Neville 🙂

                  • Teddy.15

                    Your gentle ego may well repair when I tell you dear Neville that this took 3 whole years to write and it is in my sonnet book alone lol as I think I could never venture to write another. Such a beautiful kind encouraging comment, I think if you ever tried you would not be defeated dear friend. ❤️
