All English Sonnets
VISIT TO PATNI TOP WITH HER
When hand-in-hand in lovely woods we roamed,
Of pines and furs and birches so serene,
We hugged and kissed and laughed and now entombed,
In memory lies this happy happy scene.
Was every nook and corner by us combed,
What heady moments, what wild vagrant mood
Was ours. This love-laden aptitude
By lisping whispers of these veterans groomed.
Though gnarled by roaring winds, they brooding stand;
Time- honored, leafy cushions at their feet;
And pointed needles skywards in the air,
We hidden in their shadows hand-in-hand
You whispered this to me in that retreat,
“All things are lovely when my love is here”.
