A sonnet

A Poem by Joseph Cooper

Eyes, deep blue like rolling tides

Hair, flowing like silken spools of gold

Skin, Clear like the virgin snow I stride

Hands, so delicately in my hand hold


Sweet like sugar straight from the cane

Smile radiant like the suns gaze

No greater intellect than in her brain

A beauty not trapped to counting days


The flowing wind parts for her graceful meander

Fire would quench itself to see her smile

The most beautiful dream would be slander

It cannot capture an ounce of her style


Her smile could melt the coming snow

Setting fire wherever she would go

I immediately thought about skin cancer after reading this a second time. Haha. Nice work!
