Sonnet for Erica

There was a humble spirit of the garden
  Who trappèd was inside a cave of ice
  Where she would diligently pray for pardon,
  Millenia remote from Paradise.
Hours each day she meekly sacrificed
  While others of her kind busied themselves
  Without a care for their routine of vice
  Mounting their golden idols on their shelves.
Seldom they paused, and seldom would they delve
  Into the depths of her resignèd sorrow
  Nor could they help but count their days in twelves
  Ticking each hour from now into tomorrow;
Little she knew the garden since had dried,
And it was thirsty for the tears she cried.

Oh how I have missed your writing, Bri . . .
Erica is a lucky woman, indeed

This tasted like Kubla Khan
except for the ending . . .
it seems to me that she is maybe in a better place than she thinks?

I AM lucky to have a friend like Brian

You roxers! What else can I say.. thank you..

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

What is there about a sonnet.......? Love 'em or hate 'em, somehow they're part of who we are, and no poet fails to respond. Dunno, just something that I've wondered about for a long time, and now again.
