As the sun over yonder mount does rise
My love lay here asleep and lost in dream
And as I look on her with both mine eyes
It seems as though her mouth is fixed to scream
The monsters in her dream do crawl and creep
And pull her down to burn her in the fire
I wish that I could break her from her sleep
Than leave her there as though on funeral pyre
I want to hold her in my arms and say
That she hath not a reason more to fear
I want to say "I love you more each day"
And that nothing can harm her while I'm here
     Yet while she sleeps she has an angel face
     And so I'll leave her lying in her place

Welcome to Passions!  Nice sonnet you have written here.  Sounds like true love lives at your house.

Thanks, but I do not have love in my house, due to the fact that I am only 17.

Hi Rojo, this is a lovely heart felt
piece of work  - I commented on this yesterday, but somehow it must have slipped
through the ever mysterious web --)

I hope that most 17 year olds live in a house
that has love in it.  Love is many faceted.

--)
My neice writes -- and she is almost 16.
She writes many dark pieces -- makes me
nervous sometimes, but she is quite normal.
LOL

Take Care,
Teresa King

Lovely Sonnet!
(They take quite a lot of patience to write)
