(A Sonnet from the Archives)

Night's pallid hush ascends with gentle Grace.
Nocturnal fauna nestles back in ground.
Precursive solar tendrils peer around
Through tatted eyelets in morn's tree-top lace.

Faint blushing tiers of pink and crimson hue
Unfold soft wisps of streaming cirrus cloud.
The meadow's haze of gossamer a shroud,
As crystal sheaths submit to glist'ning dew

And cautious sunbeams flicker on the rise.
Clenched petals stretch to welcome dawning's rays,
A valiant beacon bursts forth in full blaze.
The Morning Star now masked by azure skies -

'Til breath of life, that brief eternity
God's sacred Realm embraces only me.





------------------
Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.
~ 1592 Wm. Shakespeare ~ Romeo & Juliet ~ ii. iv. 75

I'm simply awestruck. This may be the first sonnet I read through entirely. Not only that, I read it twice.

Fist time I got past the structure and was pleasantly greeted with fabulous imagery.

You are not the queen of poetry for nothing, Nanibabe.

Positively wonderful.

Your light showers us in brilliant hues. Without you, darkness would befall and lost we would be. Thank you for your guidance.

A very nice sonnet Nan,
