Sonnet 350 (The Sight of You)

 

Those giddy days when poetry was king

To rule my heart when nothing else would do

When days were dull your love to me would bring

Then through these lines preserved the sight of you.

 

And though you came, in life, you still did go

Now left with empty verse to fill, instead

With metaphors of love I once did know

Your mem'ry keep what happiness has shed.

 

But now I realize these lines may fail

For though you may keep here your lips can’t kiss

For words before your love will always pale

And when my pen is down your love still miss.

 

And so I’m left with these poor lines to write

That only live if you are in my sight.
