  • Autumn's Sonneteer

    Out yond there on an ivy bunch where lone a blackbird sings;
    I know not why nor shall I try to understand such things.
    For born this morning on a song, pray hark, yon sweet refrain;
    e’en make a sigh, oh, dare not I, for this in God’s domain.

    Be blest ’neath autumn’s silver sun, in voice the break of day;
    there ne’er afore, e’er I adore such music on display.
    ’Tis love indeed, a lover’s song, a diva, I declare,
    in soaring o’er both vale and moor, this morning’s love affair.

    In wonder’s charm, this precious bird in song to comfort me.
    Alone I stroll, no proffered soul to share my company.
    Yet rare a morn, in splendours all, true love like none afore;
    let passions roll, in song extol, in verse the morn’s rapport .

    Be succour in such music found for autumn ails me so,
    when summer’s run, the harvest done, to rest my scythe and hoe.
    O’er idle lands where lonely hearts to wait without employ.
    Come hail the sun, thy kingdom come, when sings that bird of joy.

    And I again fine fettle in though autumn leaves still fall.
    ’Tis life anew, a sweeter brew when hear the songstress call.
    For ne’er alone, let break the dawn, arise o’er foul and fear;
    ’tis all to do, good hearts and true, sings autumn's sonneteer.
