Love Sonnet 131: 'Sadness......recall of lost love often brings'
Sadness......recall of lost love often brings,
With bridge to Heaven shattered down and gone,
When healing wounds open to added stings,
Or subjected to some, if once there's none;
An hermitage is sprung by heart distraught,
Free from intrusions of the ears and eyes,
Or else, seclusion would all come to naught,
So best that every passion left now dies;
But flaming love, once it breaks free, survives,
Yet burning out with cognizance denied,
But from the ashes, Phoenix-like revives;
And past torments with newer joys belied;
......Love brims as new, the second time around,
......After its loss when afterwards was found.
