#NaPoWriMo: A Poem A Day – Day 30

Hi everyone! Today is day Thirty of the national poetry month competition and the final day!

Here’s my offering >>>


[Instructions:] From NaPoWriMo Day Thirty … Write a Cento. A Cento is a poem that is made up of lines taken from other poems.

Love Sublime


If ever two were one, then surely we

I do forgive thy robb’ry, gentle thief

The thirst that from the soul doth rise

My heart has left it’s dwelling place

And the rocks melt wi’ the sun

Struck dumb I was

After all, there’s no need to say anything

For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine’

I thank you, kind and best beloved friend


Today’s poetic prompt is perfect for me to choose from among some of the great love poets on the weekend of my 3rd wedding anniversary. I hope you enjoyed what I cobbled together. Here are the poets I borrowed from … 

To My Dear and Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet

Sonnet 40 by William Shakespeare

Song: To Celia by Ben Johnson

First Love by John Clare

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns

Struck Dumb by Sunday Yemi Akinbamido 

Flirtation by Rita Dove

I loved you first: but afterwards your love by Christina Rossetti

Sonnet: I Thank You by Henry Timrod

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support throughout the NaPoWriMo 30 Day Poetry Challenge 🙂
