    The inspiration would be Robert Burns?
    Very well written, thoughtful and intelligent.

    Ingrid, this is beautiful. You have used the terms "thine" and "thee" perfectly, without sounding trite or forced. A wonderful love poem. - And thank you for your words regarding my mother. I appreciate them very much.

    Indeed, it is a lovely poem. I like the idea of you using old English for piece. It work for me. Your poems never seems to disappoint me and there is always something new from your poems;)

    The beat and flow in this was so prominent, although it was simply worded, it penned such beauty. A lovely write, especially since using Old English. Keep up the magnificent work my friend!

    This is a lovely poem. This surprises me because I am not normally a fan of the archaic-sounding poems written today. Even though I'm not sure "hand of thee" is correct, this piece doesn't read like it was written today. Its style belongs right in the classical world that doesn't date. I think the secret is that you have achieved a lovely and rhythmic meter that is spot on in this poem. Also, your subject of love here is simple and sweet, which really suits the style and length.

    My mother can't sing to save her life, but she always recites poetry to herself as she works. (Good meter is essential for this.) Your poem is exactly the kind of thing she loves and I, in turn, love it too.
