Sunday Sonnet!



Beside a slow meandering soothing brook,
Its gurgling water shimmering in the sun,
A hapless maid, by cruel love forsook,
Stared gloomily, her golden dreams undone;
Once, long ago, her youthful innocence,
Assailed by barb from Cupid’s skillful bow,
Succumbed to smitten beau’s fateful caress,
Whose protestations set her heart aglow;
As merge two becks into a stronger stream,
Convergent passions flourished for some time,
Conceiving of a mutual future dream –
Then sounded Destiny an ‘Ending Chime’!
Thus forlorn Faith in mortal anguish burns,
And helpful hope declines, till Love returns!

  3. Your sparkling rivulet is quite delightful. It does not hint at forlon love, or unrequited keepsakes. What does belie the water subtly tinkling over the stones?

  6. Having been in a row with “significant other” of late, this spoke to me. I keep telling myself that I am too old to be in a romance, but my heart ain’t buying it! Sigh. Hugs, dear friend! ā¤
