    Good morning!

    I am impressed by your poem ' I sonnet', because it reminds of my times when i used to be a humanizer. I retired, because i made a decision to be a real man. Hence, a realman provides respect & dignity for his one & only. Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

Best Poem of Sir John Suckling

Sonnet I

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
The red and white works now no more on me
Than if it could not charm, or I not see.

And yet the face continues good,
And I have still desires,
Am still the selfsame flesh and blood,
As apt to melt
And suffer from those fires;
Oh some kind pow'r unriddle where it lies,
Whether my heart be faulty, or her eyes?

She ev'ry day her man does kill,
And I as often ...
