The Song Of Heaven (Sonnet) - Poem by Aufie Zophy

The violent waves of the stormy sea break
It is the song of heaven that they sing
Amazing, wonderful music they make
Adorable roars, truly enlight'ning

Heaven is pleased and delights in it all
A heavenly cloud gives the sea a kiss
The horizon, at a distance so small
Embraces the sea, an ocean of bliss

But heavenly songs and heavenly scenes
Without the beautiful image of you
Do not seem complete and so in my dreams
I'm not here alone, but we're here with two

So much I love sounds and sights of the sea
Much more dear's still, the love ‘tween you and me

Topic(s) of this poem: love

Form: Sonnet

My second sonnet, dedicated to my lovely wife.

    A wonderful tribute to the one you love, Aufie. The content is excellent. The presentation could be improved a little if you used less syllables in some of the lines, you lose the flow somewhat otherwise. For instance.......................
    So much I love sounds and sights of the sea
    Much more dear's still, the love ‘tween you and me.......................

    I love the sounds and sights of the sea,
    Much more dear still, your love for me.

    Many thanks, Jak for the comments. I thought a sonnet required each verse to have 10 syllables (?)

    if a horizon is a distance to face for heaven and sea to meet
    on the surface for both to touch & that must be the eternal seed
    if angels sing, and if the melody from heaven borrowed
    All the universe will far from world sorrow
    Love it Hans_Soul

    Sea and its music are so captivating! That is why the beaches are frequented by hordes of people! The song of the gentle waves and the roar of breakers are equally enthralling! A Sweet dedication to your 'lovely wife! (Report) Reply
