Sonnet 2: Loves Sweet Labours


Two swans graced the lake with wings spreading wide
Gliding one behind the other in love
The sun glinting down the shimmering lakeside
Like a sparkling glinting turtle dove.
Two lovers walking hand in hand with one heart
Along the lakeside path, two hearts beat as one
Loves sweet labour found never to depart.
Two swans with necks entwined, loves bright sun,
Their white virgin feathers gleaming brightly.
Two lovers lips entwined in love face to face
Two hearts beating as one beating tightly.
A cool breeze blows windswept leaves that gently grace
The winding lover’s path meanders along
The lakeside that loves sweet labours with a song.

    You capture the scene so vividly with such beauty and grace, that glides as easily as the two swans, here love is dazzling with complete happiness! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
