Poem 037, Sonnet 14: All That I Require - Poem by Samer Madbak

Here is my life and all that I require
The village, vale, this gorgeous greenery
Are sustenance, my heart’s machinery
Th’ingredients of delight, my sole desire
What else could I pursue, what more acquire
Sublimer than my Mother’s scenery?
My coffer’s full, my treasure plenary,
Care I for aught than this, my vast empire?
Oh loveliness occult, my heart’s release
Conceal me here away from urban broil
Replace with restful grace this tedious toil
And let me from your fairness gain increase,
Transplant my kernel in this sacred soil
Swamp me with silence, with Arcadian peace.
