Sonnet On Love 1 (Petrarchan Sonnet)


As I sit silently across this room
A sweet nostalgic moment comes to mind
About a love I cannot leave behind
'Twas a place where it used to be my home
Those years and good times where I always roam
A glimpse of her face so lovely at sight
Love unequalled and never will I find
I recall those sleepless nights in my room
And to think of her fairness constantly
No matter how the years passed and unwind
Still I reminisced and loved her beauty
Just her name! ! my heart reacts in a bind
This poem's made to refresh her memory
And ease the solitude and misery...

    Thank you Sandi, as ever...Petrarchan is a 14 line poem,10 syllables/line, that rhymes in lines (1-4-5-8) , (2-3-6-7)
    9-11 10-12 and 11-14. An old form of poetry. (Report) Reply

    ...Just her name! ! my heart reacts in a bind...
    Bound up in love, sweet bindings, welcome constraints, prison embraced, freedom erased yet enjoyed in love.
    Beautiful, delicate and light as usual. What is a Petrarchan Sonnet? (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
