Sonnet - II (I pray you shall not leave me in the Spring)


I pray you shall not leave me in the Spring
Nor yet in Autumn ever to depart
I could not bear to hear the sweet birds sing
If then you chose to break my tender heart
I beg you do not leave in Summertime
When all the flowers be in fullest bloom
O leave me not in Winter's icy clime
For then, my love, would ever be too soon
And when the bright sun rises every day
So too when evening shadows soft descend
‘Tis then I ask that you will ever stay
That our sweet love may never yet thus end
O leave me when my heart has turned to stone
For then, my love, I deem to be alone

    With what picks of love must I deeply bore
    seasoned heart, that has coldly closed your door. (Report) Reply

    And exhale................. My next assignment I think is going to be a sonnet. They are much trickier than you make them look. Always your pen flows with such ease and such grace! Inspirational my lovely lady. (I have missed reading you.) x (Report) Reply

    Another fine effort and I agree with Diane Hine regarding the last 2 lines, as a sonnet with that twist at the end is a splendid thing and adds a great finale of uncertain or different direction as achieved here. (Report) Reply

    ...But if your heart never turns into stone, he will not leave you at all!
    As you won`t be reckless enough to get into such a phase, it is taken for granted that your seasons will ever be fine with love as your shade close to you. You are never going to be left alone. (Report) Reply

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
