Petrarchan Sonnet: If No One Else Breathed In This Wide, Wide World


If no one else breathed in this wide, wide world
Will one know one exists under this sun
Or how will he guess he's the only one
If none thought of him in some other world

Will he then climb upon some hill all bold
To announce: Where is there another son
Not just the wayward scowling wind undone
By thunder - great tyrant out to scold

Alone bears this man the pain of mankind
Left to look for answers in porous sky
None else around to guide his erring hand

If he but an instant shut his lone mind
Even an attosecond long gone by
Will earth and sky stay true not second hand.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
