Michael Burton Posted August 5, 2017 Share Posted August 5, 2017 I've been away from home for a while, but was able to compose this, my fifth sonnet (and second one posted in this forum). I especially like this sonnet, because in it I feel myself becoming more comfortable with metrical variations. Hope you enjoy. Sonnet 5 Inclement forecasts will include the rain, To warn the sickly and the over-worried To don thick coats, and miss the lightest stains, Which patient windows never mind, though blurried. Shouldst thou sink down into my clear-skied arms, Wrap me with the fresh scents of dry-leav’d flowers, Remove me from tempests where nothing harms, Where just to be is peace, in vacant showers? No! Purge, and wash out clouded and confus’d Remembrances of sunlit fallacies: To thunder-darken’d nimbuses refuse, And nature’s flowing, undampen’d mood to flee. Thou and I shall be soak’d in open air, When love with love from storms uncover’d share. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
