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.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
