Intrepid, stronger than any man I know, An alluring mind housed in one so plain, Love took the form of a ruffled sparrow, Virtuous, glorious, my own, my Jane. Candid, precocious, unpredictable, Oh, how she provokes me, asks far too much, Ardent, true, but damned immovable, A bird I may view, yet never can touch. She has flown, as I knew that she would, There is no longer a reason to live, Where is my happiness, all that is good, Why was her pure heart unable to forgive ... I hear that voice as though reason too burned, It is her! At last, my soul has returned!
Couple: Jane Eyre and Mr. Edward Rochester

    Well now that I read the other reviews, I realize it was Edward speaking, not Tarzan. Guess I need some more reading. Congratulations!

    Cyndi, you chose to write about my favourite fictional couple! As usual, you blew me away with this gorgeous sonnet. I just love that you used the sort of old-fashioned language that would have appeared in a novel like Jane Eyre. Congrats on your win in my contest!
