Love Sonnet 102: 'The sea that pounds the shore unceasingly, '

The sea that pounds the shore unceasingly,
Gives wisdom to all, for whom it so brings,
But naught it lays a word enticingly,
As gem must be dislodged where so it clings;
To know the passion of its heart that rules,
Or else, discern its longings and desires,
It would be well to ask the other fools,
As they are all ablaze with the same fires;
The lonely sea seems bent to press the shore,
To nudge it to consent to wishes asked,
Like hidden love, to come out to the fore,
Outside of crust with which it has been masked;
......My love, let me be waves that pound the sand,
......If only to be close to touch your hand.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
