Cognizance

I have loved and I have fought
I have learned and I have taught
I have watched the skyís many hew
And glory of the morningís dew

Iíve watched the workings of the sun
Make green valleyís and desserts shun
Iíve bent my back and tilled the soil
And let my mind to dreamers oil

Iíve sailed upon a sea of fish
And thrown my net of wile and wish
And stored a cargo full of hope
All that I and ship could cope

But now itís time to rest awhile
To sit upon a style of Isle
To count the lilies in the field
Watch the yield and drop my shield

The sky has beckoned me to fly
Itís something that Iíve yet to try

Oh, my goodness! I absolutely adore this poetic piece of you!   Saved faster than you can say "morning glory".

Gosh, I truly do adore you as well as your muse!

Have a glorious day, my sweet sonneteering friend!

This is grand:

ĒI have loved and I have fought
I have learned and I have taught
I have watched the skyís many hew
And glory of the morningís dew....Ē

I especially love:

ďIíve sailed upon a sea of fish
And thrown my net of wile and wish
And stored a cargo full of hope....Ē

and:

ďThe sky has beckoned me to fly
Itís something that Iíve yet to tryĒ

serious applause!

You know ... I am starting to feel the same way - basically putting one foot in front of the other and seeing where it takes me.  Been there, done it, and can't even figure out what else to do these days that won't give me a pain somewhere.      I bet you know that feeling right?  Great poem Sy.

"And let my mind to dreamers oil"

Sir, you must have oiled the raging water smooth so

"... now itís time to rest awhile
To sit upon a style of Isle
To count the lilies in the field
Watch the yield and drop my shield"

tell me how?

love to read as alwasy
have a wonderful day. Sir Tabin

Ha! *G* You'd better plan on taking your pen with you on that flight... for while you may have earned the rest, we're all addicted to your words. *G*

This is lovely!

Loved Ruth's comment, and I would bet he not only took his pen with him, but he is loaded with paint brushes too.   He is surely missed.

Yes, Missed!

I love wandering among Sy's thoughts,
My sails and smiles still are caught (between my heart and curious eye)
where he'd tac and spin, and I would fly.

Karen
