A Sonnet for My Love

Oh, Theatre!  Thou art my true, lasting love

You’ve stood beside me, steadfast, all these years

Methinks that thou were sent from hea’en above

To grant me laughter and some humble tears.


Expression is something we humans need

To find our truth and look it in the eye

Good theatre happens then, I feel, indeed.

It’s not just “who, what, where” or “how” but “why”


For when I saw thee, it was not enough.

I had to have experience with thee

You’re not the stage, the lights, or other “stuff”

You’re the connection betwixt them and me.


A good relationship is give and take

And ours has both.  I thank thee, for art’s sake.
