Though tender Mayís offerings shall consign
A soul so enticed by sunís sweet affair
It is summerís burnt eyes that you enshrine.

You who find leis of love and do resign
To winterís midday sun should but declare
Juneís wisdom and with final word outshine.

For with Spring solstice do your sunís align
And find them clear of winter and despair.
It is summerís burnt eyes that you enshrine.

Dark Decemberís heart which you entwine
With the passionate power of your stare
No longer sees clearly to draws a line.

In Spring do they lamp and search for the sign
Of a newly born month on which to care.
It is summerís burnt eyes that you enshrine

Expert in the direct and the sublime
Length of seasons you no longer compare
Though tender Mayís offerings shall consign
It is summerís burnt eyes that you enshrine

i really like this subject. you will have to forgive me that sometimes what is being said does not always hit me right away. i have a feeling that this is a poem in which a specific meaning will strike me at a later date...and i like these type best of all.

I was reading back thru some of the 'older postings' and found this gem. Great example of a villanelle!
