Sonnet: “Penny for Your Thoughts”

(This is a service the poet offers by donation)

*****

Do you desire to give the kind of gift
A smile like sunshine on receiver’s face to see —
The sort which gives a true heart such a lift
That you will always well remembered be?

Then give to them a poem by my hand
And yours, carefully crafted, published too
The words of which will help them understand
All that they truly mean to loving you

You tell me all about them, and I’ll write
The poetry, with both our names upon
By which their sweet sincere, heartfelt delight
May by our efforts mutual be won

Linked their own precious name will ever be
With yours and mine, for all posterity
