Little sonnet written upon a snowy evening

Postby Pjerrot » Tue Dec 21, 2010 2:57 pm

Lest I forget the newfound path I tread
and lesser purpose my existence find,
would sooner I be still that spirit dead.
Now, teach me all your truths, you frozen faes,
of all the wonder Nature has instilled,
of trees, of stones, of birds, and of the chilled
sleeping earth that whispers in thoughtful dreams.
Ah! I will taste that dew, for me ’tis meet,/And when the moon her pallid face discloses,/I’ll gather some by spells, and incantation.

That's sweet Pjerrot.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

Thank you, Raphael. I have been experimenting with a bit more discipline and form in these "little sonnets." I have also been trying to keep up with the forum here but school has been taking up much of my time.

Do you mean secondary school or college? In Britain school means where pupils go from age 5-18.

I especially like the last line about the sleeping Earth- just has a very nice feel and and atmosphere about it. It does seem most of Nature is asleep right now!

Thank you. It does seem a rather sleepy time of year yet there is something lively in the swirling snowflakes and little birds twittering about. And on particularly snowy evenings, in the darkest hour of night, the trees seem to meditate among themselves.
