Sonnet: The Beautiful Sky

Many a patterned clouds, I must have seen
All days of life, so glorious to the eyes;
Quite captivating too, many have been;
What beauty, so enthralling, holds the skies!

And night has shown the starry heaven’s view;
The sun and moon have added splendor much;
And dawn and twilight, awesome with their dew;
-The Master painter’s brush’s magic touch!

And rarely have I seen some rarer sights;
My mind could not discern their meanings still;
What frescoes got displayed by darkness, lights!
God promised me far better things by will!

If skies have wonders breath-taking indeed,
What more the universe can man’s heart feed!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
