Broken Stars⁓* (wish anew)

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.

You are welcome Kind Sir.......♥..
Those stars a great inspiration. Good emotional change in the third stanza. Clever original rhymes. Lovely, though bitter-sweet conclusion. ( But why did you put the poem into stanzas? I thought sonnets were one verse of 14 lines.) Look forward to reading your next masterpiece,

A good example of the form, magical and romantic, and a lovely use of vocabulary and convention. There were only a few hitches in the rhythm -- for me -- but otherwise I loved it. Good job on the presentation too! :)

Hello, Richard! :)
I think this is lovely. The phrasing and imagery of stanza one really pulled me in, and continued, carrying a message that I read as somewhere between accepting and coping with loss. But such is life, hu? The show goes on as the actors change.

"Tonight the moon looks lonely in its skies, old universe turns on...its paid no mind". Superbly well-written! " O' broken stars we thank you from each heart" Such Beauty transient, here and gone in the glimmer of a worshipping eye... The bar is raised. Kudos to a Master!
