Brian Strand, UK

 

The Crosswise form was popular in the 17th century. It can be read in almost any direction.
 

My Love

Your face
So deep
Awoke
your eyes
so green
met mine
your smile
so warm
dear heart
In me
This desire
Always
Remains
that day
to kiss
your lips
divine
a part
to hold
to me
all mine
     
 

My Lord

 
Your word
So true
Draws near
My soul
your life
so pure
fills up
my being
your love
so free
attracts
my heart
My soul
To walk
Your way
Today
my being
to learn
your truths
 to say
my heart
to love
your name
to pray
     
 

Love Letters

 
Your verse
So free
Excites
My ear
your poems
so nice
delights
my eye
your words
so true
warms
my heart
My ear
To hear
Your voice
This day
my eye
to see
your soul
fly free
my heart
to trust
your love
to me
