It is indeed the time to pour our souls out about this terrifying, frustrating, and seemingly endless confinement taking us away from the world of spring, and our loved ones. For "love and law" indeed we do this thing, and watch as our lives become more and more like a drawn out movie plot. I haven't read a sonnet in quiet a while - yours did the format justice. It was a nice touch to label them with roman numerals. It is a lot of work, thought, and creativity that lent you to creating such wonderful flow while maintaining all the rhymes required. Thank you for sharing your work.
Your sonnets have taken a huge step Mark, wonderful indeed. M :)

Four splendid sonnets that blend into one outstanding poem. Of what I've read of yours, this is your best so far, the best of the best, that is. You have captured a love isolated with sublime turn of phrase whilst maintaining a perfect flow and a superb rhyming scheme but it's the sheer beauty of your poetry, that overwhelms.
