Fresh Grass Sonnet


I said that I would stay for evermore,
And shut my heart away where no one sees
But now I stand beside the open door
Here in the morning sun, to feel the breeze

With scents of flowers wafting down the hall.
And dancing motes of dust in sunbeams where
Their slanting fingers shine. I still recall
That far-off morning, and the scented air.
 
My heart escapes to where the birds still sing
But dreams no more of that which might have been.
I seek a future fate for time to bring
Fields of new-grown grass, fresh and emerald green.
 
Pastures new and painted with a different hue
Now with the world remade so bright and true

    The form is perfectly executed while the flow is natural and supportive of the read and its contents. The imagery you provide the reader is clear and beyond amazing. Very well written. Michael
