Love Sonnet 198: 'Moonlights Without Love, Just A Waste Of Moons'


Moonlights without love, just a waste of moons,
Loose, empty hugs, apt tunnels for the wind,
Sand castles built upon the shifting dunes,
Such sorry wastes, I'm hapless to rescind;
A showy dress of living contents, nil,
A lovely face, to mask the lack of soul,
Might Galatea all my dreams fulfill,
If statues bear the charms that I extol;
But surely soon, a love, some goddess brings,
Much better though if decked with ancient gems,
Such precepts on which olden wisdom clings,
The best for any lass to wear than diadems;
......My fault, I yearn the past so much, it seems,
......To oft confuse the memories with dreams.
