A Sonnet........for Maxfield

 How our love doth inspire me
          oh beauteous one!
At the sight of your fair face
                    my heart lifts
like a bird......taking to air.

The melody of your angelic voice
          heightens my senses
                    to delight and laughter,
adding dimension to my life.

Your sweet inspiration
          guides my hand, my imagination,
                    each stroke I bring to the canvas
each line is a caress......
                              to your loveliness.

No poet am I, no words to stroke
          your ears of perfect form,
                    expounding on the virture of our love,
not pen engraving tender protestations
          of what sorrow life would be
                              without you....

My gift to you......is to immortalize you,
          your grace, form, in rainbow hues
                    vermillion, violets, golds and siennas
sending your image out into the ethers forever
                              and my heart goeth with.

.........To you, my endless desire, my love.........
