Sonnet 15

At night the Morning sleeps and Night she is
Wearing a pearl of stars and moon-lit ring
Her quilt spreads through the firmament a quiz
Unquestioned by nocturnal beasts that sing

I wonder what it would be like to dream
Without the beauty of her essence drawn
To ever be a Queen or ever gleam
The diamonds from her darkness after dawn

Nights ornaments are much to fine a view
That our erotic eyes romance and spy
For it would be a crime if no one knew
Her chandeliers that constellate the sky

And be it may I lay on fertile flowers
Gazing her gown that glitters after hours

    I agree with Emma, your sonnets are wonderful with such lovely visions for the mind. I hope your schedule lets up some so you can find time to write again.

    Johnny what can I say? I am in awe of your talents for sonnets. What a stunning picture you've portrayed here. Great imagery 'Her chandeliers that constellate the sky' And I love the last line. Best wishes Em :)
