Newtonian Sorrow

Newtonian Sorrow

A Poem by Doodley
"

Sonnet.

"
At pearl light from womb till Life's twilight gloam,
The heralded pinnacle did I seek,
Universal answers contained in tome,
I found upon a lonely mountain peak.

Soundless secrets whispered into eager ears,
Infused the tendrils of my wondrous mind,
As swollen eyes seduced of falling tears,
Belied the joyous knowledge I did find.

But, wisdom's words cannot be cast to wind,
Dispersed as worthless without solemn care,
Else in Creator's wrath she might rescind,
This knowledge she cloaks in rarefied air.

As seekers of secrets quest's do begin,
My Newtonian Sorrow breeds within.

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Alfred. Very kind words for this experimental piece.
Only the brave venture where the Bard slayed ;) I'm technically illiterate when it comes to such things...but this tastes and feels quite beautiful off the tongue. A fine piece of writing. R xo

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Sasha. Very kind words. Welcome to my poetic domain.
Always tough following the Bard.
His writing seems even more popular now.
But even in your own words, this is a nice sonnet.
I doth my cap to you.
