Love Sonnet 105: 'Some stars taunt me, to mock my loneliness'


Some stars taunt me, to mock my loneliness
As these I failed to praise in last night’s skies,
Furious when left to shine unsung, cheerless,
For all I cared to see were my love’s eyes;
Much like flowers which wilt on lea unseen,
Those stars may have faded while unobserved
With no glory to show for what they’ve been.
They so resent outcomes when ill-deserved;
But glories are mostly by time vanished;
Where now is Tut? Alexander the Great?
How so grandly in life have they flourished
Before they all to lowly dust translate?
…….Yet being known to have a glorious past,
…….Is oft the only glory that would last.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
