Where Hard Rocky Crags Meet White Foamy Sea

Where Hard Rocky Crags Meet White Foamy Sea

Where hard rocky crags meet white foamy sea
rip-roaring splashes, sing softly to me.
Under starlit heavens, big yellow moon
Our fleeting lives vanish far, far too soon!

Where waiting sands absorb bold, mighty waves
further out lay, lost ships and lone sea graves.
Yet sadness can not diminish this view
Or hide the spot where I proposed to you!

I see again, star glow in your bright eyes
and hear that quick yes and your happy cries.
My darling, in this, our sweet tale lays bound
unbreakable vows, true love we both found!

Where hard rocky crags meet white foamy sea
rip-roaring splashes, remind me of thee!

Many good mentions in this, Robert. : ) You speak of profound things, and the sea meeting rocks is one of the world's great places.

Hi Robert, another excellent sonnet from your golden pen. You capture moments in life so well. This write takes my mind back in time and i love the feeling of the past that comes to me. I'm not really a twentieth Century guy. Your poetry is always worth the reading Robert. There are always emotions to be felt. Your sonnets do always sing Robert. Your Friend Always....Mike. This has to be a seven and a fave.

Thanks my friend.. I feel like I should have been born in the 17th century myself! I write a lot about moments in my long and once ever so wild life.. I am lucky and blessed that others find such interesting... Your poems often remind me of old time classic poets.. something that I admire so much!

A marvellous sonnet, you mirror my thoughts about life being so fleeting, in a blink of an eye it is all over, an enjoyable read 7+
