Songbird

Songbird, dost thou recall our verse,
lyrics that fueled adolescent hearts 
afire?
Painting smiles during ever the 
worse,
with soothing voice impervious to 
tire.
Thus I listened with mine ears 
compelled free,
sans shield against thine alluring 
voice.
I recall the tune which rang of we...
Thoust sang for me, with fervor, by 
choice.
Yet, silent hast now become thy song 
of I,
entwined to thee with immutable 
grin.
Though memories of music seldom 
die,
I fear, of me, thou shall ne'er sing 
again.
If such a fright is that which must 
be...
Why hast thy voice alone ever 
touched me?

    I like this one Audonis, just the right amount of sadness to add significance. You have a way of drawing the reader into your world.

    You picked the perfect form to express your words! I love how you use the old english, very fitting for a sonnet. This is beautiful, far better than my sonnet!
