In praise of Happy Marriage: A Sonnet

Learn to stand quiet and full of deep attention

If thou forget then hit thy face with a sharp smack;

Which would aid thy to remember goodness of wife with correction,

If thou lose mind again, then don't ever dare to bang the dishes with a huge crack.

Stay obedient and true to heart, do not creep around

Thou can make thy lady happier with a credit card of endless limit;

Beware thy silence on her spending is a golden key to keep her heart surround,

Thy mistress would make thy world a Paradise of Roses in a minute.

Thou lips art pink like Roses my lady, thy smile seems like splashing water

Thy eyes are deep like an ocean, thy voice is sweet than a melody sound;

I never saw a goddess as hot as thou art my mistress, now nothing much matter,

Thou art my happiness of heart, I yearn to die in thy arms while sensing ground.

Thou art not easy to possess Oh Blissful Happy Marriage

Desperate art those who don't taste thou; And those too who swing in thy Carriage.

A Vow to love during all seasons

      Excellent work, thoroughly enjoyable poem!

      Expressing important life messages, in a fun manner is an art, and you did it beautifully.

      You are right—a happy Marriage needs lot of understanding, commitment, adjustments, the ability to forget and forgive, trust, and what not. Love is of course the foundation, that makes it all happen.

      God Bless your happily married life. Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem!

      Thanks Jo for stopping by and for leaving such an amazing comment, this sonnet is my first try and to write it in rhythm was bit difficult and I’ve tried my best to write it according to Shakespearean Sonnet.

      Thanks Chris for your visit, I appreciate your comment.

      Thanks God You’ve learned not to bang the dishes as women love their cutlery more than anything.And another one is always listen to them and never ask questions as women don’t like to give answers.

      Just kidding Chris, I think main rule is love only which can conquer anything and anyone.

      Thanks Sean Brother for coming along and for such a wonderful comment.I always admire your comments.

      Patience and sacrifice both are very necessary to maintain a blissful happy marriage.And of course, love is the tool to get through this beautiful phase smoothly and joyfully.

      Money comes after which is another important factor to get this journey going without ups and downs.

      Every thought of your sonnet is founded on truth..."don't ever dare to bang the dishes with a huge crack." I learned that one a couple of times. Thanks for the beautiful reminders of a happy marriage.

      Yes my dear Sister, Marriage, like life, is an Art. The most essential "ingredient" is Love but the patience is significant too! A happy marriage for 34 marvellous years and four sons, have taught me that! I believe that my beloved wife is the most important blessing of my life.

      Such a beautiful Sonet! Thank you for sharing.

      I wish you many many years of happy marriage.

      God bless your family.

      Ha ha, thanks Flourish for getting along this fun!

      You must remind Mr FlourishAnyway that how lucky he is to have you in his life as a wife.

      As husbands tend to forget alot and it’s wives’ responsibility to remind them again and again that how blessed is their life with them :)

      Bless you, your hubby and kids dear!

      Thanks Mike for your valuable visit, it’s an honour for me to get comment from a great author like you’re.

      Ha ha, coming to my sonnet, husband should have plenty to spend on his wife to keep her happy :)

      A secret to a happy marriage, and husband should listen to his wife quietly, that’s another golden secret to maintain happiness in your married life.Lol.

      I loved this. I just dropped nearly $2000 on some furniture pieces I wanted today. (I rarely do that.) I shall read this to Mr. FlourishAnyway and remind him how lucky he is to be a happily married man.

      Thankfully and blessfully married with the grace of God.

      Your admiration matters alot for me.A happy marriage has many tricks to get it work successfully.

      Some work for some and others for others, you’re right in this as all humans are different from one another.

      Very interesting poem. Since the essence of it seems to be that you are happily married, then you have my admiration.

      Witty in parts and I have seen some being blessed by the route you seem to take. We are all different, I suppose. Have a great day!

      Thanks Eric for your wonderful comment and huge appreciation!

      Marriage is the most amazing thing on earth which gives you much more than it takes.

      To me, It’s like a journey full of flowers. Especially kids help a lot to make it more beautiful and love gets more and more stronger with the time.

      This is wonderful. I often stop and reflect how much of me I have lost in my wonderful marriage. And then in .002 seconds I even love more deeply. A happy marriage is just a glimpse of heaven. Longevity makes it so much better. Wow you just made me appreciate it more. Well done, thanks.

      Ha ha, you can imagine you’ve written it Bill as it’s a tribute to all the happy married couples like you and your wife are.

      This is the case with our marriage as well, infact my all friends call my hubby an atm card for me ;)

      But I had to work hard on us to get this card working, and of course my hubby did a lot of struggle too as I’m not very easy woman.Lol.

      Thanks for coming and enjoying my poem Bill, bless you and your wife always.

      Writing a sonnet is my first try to use writing in rhymes, and I found it much fun to combine all of them.

      I’m humbled to accept your assurance that this was worth it.
