Note: "W.H." is the mysterious person that Shakespeare addressed most of his sonnets to.
"N.T." is a special person in my life.

To W.H.

I write to you, whose charm remained unmatched,
Preserved in endless rhymes of poetís pen,
To tell you that from all your graces hatched
A soul, which bids perfection an amend.
My tongue falls short to capture her in word,
My hands -- to trace her likeness for your sight.
Compare her to another? -- itís absurd,
For there is not another of her might.
Imagine heavenís most divine creation,
Made even more divine by holy force,
That even Gods would stand up in ovation
To praise and thank this lovely angelís source.

Thereís only one true beauty that I see,
Allow me to address her as ďN.T.Ē

This is beautiful Master!  N.T should feel very lucky and special to have such a beautful poem written about her, from someone such as yourself!

I know I shouldn't say this but when I saw the title of this, I thought to myself " Geesh, Shakespeare knew of Wanton Hussy as well?"...sorry Master, but in another life I was Victorian..

Some will know what I mean...LOL...Great poem and yes, she has to be worth at least your heart...bless and no strings either..  

HUGS

Thank you everyone! and Denise in the words of my man Shakespeare, "out of the heart's affection in which I am in love" (or something like that)... LOL.
