A Sonnet

From my daughter who loves Keats too:

A Sonnet

I sit upon my bed and think,
While Heaven frees her heavy tears
Thoughts that tumble, turn, and sink
But never fall quite linear.
For what I feel I cannot write,
Like a ship without a shore,
My mind strangles my pen at night;
And empty letters hit the floor.
What soft mangled words do come
Bear no merit to another
And I have written one more poem,
Let this sonnet, too, be smothered.
For all the dreams in my poised hand,
I know this ship will never land.


I couldn't get the lines laid out like she had them originally (with proper indents), The default mode left justified all lines. Oh well. It's her third poem and I wanted to share it with somebody.

Hey BrokenLyre I have moved this to a separate new topic.

Your daughter is a very bright girl obviously with great taste.

Very good! I wish that I appreciated Keats much earlier.
Maybe my teachers didn't have the passion to engaged the young, restless, day dreaming soul
that I was! Or lazy layabout as my teacher was prone to put it!
Either way I'll blame the teacher!
Thanks for sharing.
Take care.

A beautifully crafted piece of work which shows so much promise. It's amazing such sensitivity and such agility in one so young. Thank you for this,
