Tre Sonnet

Tre Sonnet

A Poem by Tam Warink
"

A loving duty.

"
Look now fresh, dost she disdain he who calls her
And in time repairs where tillage be so fond?
In thy world, whose face so fair will yet inure
Her self-love in yon looking glass be oft bond?

Tell that face and form that beguiles the world,
Whose husbandry calls unto mother April,
Despite her lovely wrinkles be unfurled
Shall another unbless her prime in close drill.

Thou should perchance renew thy holy mother
Of the tomb that through ageless window chime
Remembers fond an image of another
But lives well beyond that moments golden time.

Live thou not to be remembered as fair
But till death, one who for thy mother cared.

Author's Note

Tam Warink
My apology as this was so poorly written.. a disconnect between the language and the context of centuries past. There is no way anyone could have known that it is about a prostitute and her illegitimate yet devoted and caring child that sees her aging yet still plying her trade well beyond her prime.

Thank you for reading and your comments, Lydia. ...much appreciated.
Beauty, beauty, everywhere
and not a drop to spare
upon my face, my décolletage
I'll apply this oil with ease
leaving not a drop, nor a film
to soothe your aching feet
