Lovely as Lovely be, Lovely surely favors thee And lovely as lovely be, thy lovely doth so capture me How lovely so could Lovely be? What is lovely more than thee? Oh, Lovely, kindly pardon me, but Lovely couldn't christen thee For lovely as Lovely be, lovely surely came from thee
Interpretation: stanza 1: personification of Lovely - Lovely favors my beloved stanza 2: lovely expressed in terms of beauty - both internal and external; reaffirms stanza 1 stanza 3: "Lovely pales in comparison to my beloved, who's the loveliest of all" stanza 4: "it's therefore not possible that Lovely (and, thus, lovely) existed before my beloved" stanza 5: "because my beloved, alone, defined 'lovely'." Regina has helped me realize that the capitalization of every line is just not necessary, and I have to agree with her. The "so" is just positioned for flow - that part of the stanza means, "how could Lovely (personification) be so lovely?" which leads into "nothing's lovelier that you! (not even Lovely herself)." It also presents an archaic form of sentence structure, to complement to the archaic "thy," "doth," and "thee"s. Finally, I don't normally like periods in a poem unless it's absolutely. I feel the capitalization of each sentence successfully delimits each sentence, and the insertion of periods would over-"prim and proper" the work. Thanks for all of your critiques - this poem has evolved nicely. It didn't occur to me until now, but this makes a nice Valentine's Day card greeting. Anyone want to buy it?! $$$!!!
