The Milky Way, bright tonight as spilled cream
Polaris burns, in the north a clear guide
I feel it reflect like a tender dream
Between me and thee as time and we bide

The stars reflected in the bay tonight
Shining in the sand radiate our reach
Nuclear heat sparkles where we've lain in sight
Dolphins romance sounds heard in their breech

Our words stretch forth across the firmament
Held in our union by laces of stars
Linking us, linking stronger than content
Beyond body union or the pull of Mars

Beyond Triton's reach - beyond Saturn's power
We're together tonight - we're together each hour

The first duty of love is to listen.

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

I enjoyed it all -
but delighted in the 'spilled cream' of the Milky Way best !

Delightfully lovely.

Well ya had me from the title on ...

...and your book, Mr. Yeats?  It is to be published, when?  I do well expect an autographed copy, you know.

This particular piece...will be one of the many focal points, I am sure.

I will always love the sonnet form - and I have always been fascinated by science - and space - combine these in a romantic - 'what you see is what you get' - Thank you

An absolutely perfectly done sonnet, and most enjoyable reading.
