A Sonnet for Jayne

A Sonnet for Jayne O,'Tis such a rare and beauteous thing Amidst the turmoil,who can explain That which inspires a man's soul to sing, Or to reflect its light in loud refrain. Were the stars so sullen before we met? Did both the moon and sun forswear to shine? For I could roam the whole of earth, and yet What beauty gazed upon compares to thine? With but the lightest touch my heart combusts, A whisper bids all other thoughts depart, Ensnared within love's stormy throes and gusts, With passion found, does life then truly start? I pray thee say it's me whom you adore Or let me go so I may die once more.

Thank you! I don't know how or why it made it (but this one is my favorite...so far). This site already has me writing more and I plan to enter some of your contests in the very near future!
