Love Sonnet 136: 'Those aspects of you which have me engrossed'


Those aspects of you which have me engrossed,
Might to some be not so worthy of note,
For from other blooms these have also glossed,
And to them would, a mere copy connote;
The profound way that charm of yours exudes,
To those, who through preconceived norms would peep,
Will mean nothing, as each of them concludes
With age-old lore that beauty is skin-deep;
Pity the moon, who just the ocean skims,
Not privy to the sights, lovely, within,
As soul glows, while the outer woman dims,
With the skin beauty that oft becomes thin;
.....Thus, to behold not with the seeing eyes,
.....Needs a heart that feels what the sight denies.

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
