A Poem by Richard
"

English [Shakespearean] Sonnet

"



Broken Stars~*

Last night, 'cross ebon skies stars softly rained;
'pon morning-tide, swept in their shattered shards.
O’er all the land dead stardust darkly stained …
strewn everywhere, like castaway discards.

’Twas only yester night, sweet, love-kissed eyes
reflected every bright glint each star shined …
tonight, the moon looks lonely in its skies,
old universe turns on … it’s paid no mind.

Wait! Are those tiny glimmers ~ far away?
Up there! You surely see they are alive …
few minute sparks that missed the falling fray,
from whence new lovers’ wishes will derive.

O’ broken stars, we thank you from each heart,
for all our gifts … before your sad depart.

The style and structure quite resembles that of Shakespeare.The picture is mesmeric and the poem is of course elegant and spellbinding! I love the rhyming here.

"few minute sparks that missed the falling fray,
from whence new lovers’ wishes will derive."

It has a tinge of past and a classic structure that really makes it a tempting read.

A great poem with striking images Richard. I miss looking up to see stars swept up in the sky. Now I only see black skies. Shame.

Wonderful work.
