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.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
