Font Color='#880000'I Hear Her As I Breathe The Evening Calm [english Sonnet] /Font - Poem by David Zvekic

I hear her as I breathe the evening calm,
And wonder as the million stars ascend;
As amber fades through dusk, what lingers on
When daylight wanes and darkness calls again?
Her eyes that morning, held a smile so bright,
As love exalted life showed her caress;
Her silken locks - cascading folds of light;
Forever yearning, Forever finding less.
For then the whole world faltered, all sight closed;
A twilight intermingled with the day,
As quakes of desolate silence interposed
To yield all happiness, then fade away.
  But sounds of that sweet sentence still implore:
  Just uttered once, what love hears evermore...

    I love the sonnet, it is not an easy form David, but you make it seem so. From the first line it was enchanting. 10 from romantic to the core! Tai (Report) Reply
