Love Sonnet 101: 'When what's to come confronts what's been before, '


When what's to come confronts what's been before,
At times soonest after the twilight falls,
Today exits, as seen outside the door,
Tomorrow peeps behind the midnight walls;
And what about memories forgotten,
On face of fantasies marauding by,
For might new love, when with fancy stricken,
Its dreams, soaring, would find so clogged a sky;
But Past remains as Present's main support,
As though to trees, anchors, these clinging roots,
While stems, all for themselves, the heights purport,
Below are stays that to firmness commutes;
.....My past collated every now and then,
.....Might come in handy should life start again.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
