I am not sure about this. It does lend some convenience to the reader; however it does spoil the stark “all black” look. Does anyone have any suggestions upon whether or not this is a good idea?

Sonnet IV: Her Hand
Yet lightly, and demure in size, doth touch
This hand, that doth caress unlike mine own.
Not slight, and yet not strong, but sure of such
As it commandeth, earnestly, then coy.
As teareth me away from my command
So might I fall, as willing, from my throne.
And dareth my resolve, that it withstand
Delightful magic, as it might deploy.
Its form, as true, yet different from its brother
Whom it, mercilessly, hath outshone.
Hath God imbued it, greatly, with another
Element, diverse, as would employ
Such ease–an action planned, would it postpone;
That please, from out thine hand, thy love enjoy?

Intro 4: What Touch
Is it merely a hand
Nary very different from mine own hand?
What maketh it so different?
I have actually written sonnets for six months!
