Sonnet I - 'Surely thou art a body heavenly'


Surely thou art a body heavenly
For thou pull magnetic upon my soul
A purest frost ahold but suddenly
Gravity felt onto my every whole
Curved features hypnotically entice
Thy lit horizon seen but for a trace
And at thy poles found warmth not wintry ice
A calidity e’er soft on my face
Vibrant hues define a living frame
Earthen shades dancing through the blackest skies
Humbled cosmos can but whisper thy name
In awe, pallid before thy clement eyes
For one embrace endure I would all hurt
Thou art my goddess and I thy convert

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
