A LOVERS SONNET

OH LOVE, OH BEAUTY WHO SOARS THE EARTH.

WITH ANGELIC WINGS YOUR GIFT FROM BIRTH.

WHO’S RESTING PLACE AMID THE UNIVERSE

THOUGHT LOVES FIRST VERSE.

OH TRAVELER OF DELIGHT WHO SOARS THE NIGHT

ENGULFS MY HEART IN WONDROUS FLIGHT.

BETWIXT THE FANTASY AND THE REAL

OF THOSE WHO CAN AND CANNOT FEEL.

OH COMET WHO’S WONDROUS LIGHT

MARKS CLEARLY THE VELVET NIGHT.

EMBRACING ALL LOVES PROMISE.

OH TRAVELER IN SEARCH OF PEACE.

TAKE COMFORT WITH ME FROM THE

VOID AND ENDLESS SEA OF UNREALITY.

AND SHELTER ONE ANOTHER

THRU THE LONG AND ENDLESS NIGHT.
