Sonnet, Amazed - Poem by Alan Dolan

I may not
Unthread our tapestries,
Unsay the years between,
Unmake your loss,
Unsmile my joy
At our new meeting,
Uncolour the dawn,
Unname my words,
Untouch your softness,
Untaste your mouth,
Unlearn your body,
Unsing the moment,
Unlove your gift,
Redeem my love.

    Original use of negative 'uns' resolved by a final positive line. Good work. Cheers. (Report)Reply
