National Poetry Day

Sunset in autumn, red sky at night, shepherd's delight

The 17th is National Poetry Day so I thought a sonnet would not go astray.

Sunset in autumn, red sky at night, shepherd's delight
An autumn sunset looking out over the Port of Fremantle Western Australia

I loved you through the tender months of spring

When flowers bloomed and all the world was bright

Before the heat of summer sent its sting

And changed the very quality of light

 

I loved you ‘neath the summer’s deep blue sky

Where sky and sea conjoined in endless blue

And in the sunlight knew that lucky I

Was sharing the same summertime with you

 

I loved you when the leaves began to fall

When cool winds swept the petals all away

Where grey clouds cast a shadow over all

And sadly cast aside the summer day

 

But now can Winter end before our love?

Well, that is now for me to strive to prove.
