Sonnet CCCXIX

A day begins anew as dawn arrives –
the Sun’s in love with all the Earth!
The bees are giggling in their beehives;
the gossip tickles all the birds.

You see that cautious glance, so distant?
He keeps afar, lest fiery passion
ignite his dearest, earthly love.
Devotion! Tender as a dove.

He warms her world and keeps it living
and return, she’s cruel and blind,
exalting in her selfish mind,
oblivious as planets can be.

If lovers loved like timid stars,
then love is pain and life is hard!

  1. Well, I wanted to write a sonnet comparing the sun to someone falling in love, but I haven't gotten around to writing for a very long time, so when I finally got around to writing it yesterday, it turned out sort of angsty. Oops...

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
