Sonnet Sonnet Sonnet Sonnet

Within my chest gold leaves crumble to dust,

Autumnal joys escape through leaking cracks,

Familiar sights and sighs of ruby russet

Tease aching hearts, which yearn for what they lack;

Recalling where thou were when thou were not

So far removed in spirit and in flesh,

Too sweet the mem’ries of thy lessons taught

By bitter teacher, rend’ring old pain fresh.

Yet in due time do fading blossoms bloom

Loud whispers in my stronger soul doth grow;

Braver new life will rise from seeming tombs,

Triumphant spring conquers tender old woes.

Sweet sadful joys discovered and newly written

Thy shade dispersed, thy gentle spirit risen.
