Diamond jubilee

Recommended Posts

Could diamond with sixty faces, sought,

Secure a place on the historic throne?

A nation's royal elegy is caught

In open hand of history and shown

To all- remote, indifferent audience

While to recumbent Queen sleep offers dreams.

A postman gathers mail- faces commence

Into a royal dream connecting seams

Of royal narrative, letters arrive

On doormats, bearing stamps with Queenly head.

She wakes to diamond gala, to revive

A sovereign synergy and she will read

cleardot.gifHer own reflected face, the mirrored guise

Apparent in her subjects' gilded eyes.

I enjoyed this topical sonnet. A celebration of privilege that links us to a bygone age, contrasts with the “all-remote, indifferent audience” Your Royal Mail theme works well and the end couplet rounds it off nicely for me. Just hope you weren't chasing a knight-hood. :smile: B.

i didn't even think about it the way you put it benjamin. i thought it migh be a letter of alpreciation. but thinking about your comments i think it could be plausible. well eclipse was that your true intention tobe recognozied by the monarch? i was thinking it wa just appreciation or is it even deeper. O i do aopplaud you anyway. i like your writings allot anyway to begin with...

You have obviously given this a great deal of thought with subtle words that unlock a propensity to raise various moot if not political points.

I'll leave the content of this provocative, metrical sonnet to those who are more in-the-know. But I will add, nice work on the form, Eclipse.
