Fair Rose, thy bloom from tender stem hath sprung,
As Luna's glow, upon night sky doth shine,
Of thy blossom, the god's themselves have sung,
Love's madrigals, will ever thee be mine?
From forth thy lips, thee sing sweet harmonies,
With soft caress, that kiss upon mine ear,
And touch within my soul; love's symphonies,
Forevermore, thy beauty will I hear.
Thou art the night, the calm proceeding dawn,
The glow of welkin stars through rising mist,
When air is crystalline; as newborn fawn,
Thy tenderness, when I by goddess kissed.
With rising sun, night fades with morning light,
I wait again, my goddess of the night.

I enjoy this form, Mike, and you write it so well.

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Excellent sonnet Mike.  This was very beautiful.  I especially liked the last two lines.
