Look e'en now, as the sun doth part the sky
And sail itself toward some other sea
Than thy twin oceans, left all for me
To gaze upon their loveliness, and die
Whilst within their depths the stars multiply
And glimmer as facets of thy beauty.
A thousand-score of diamond-white there be
The gems of thy soul clasp'd within thine eye.
They entrap me whole, and right that they do
For what escape would I myself allow?
Against such power I possess no thought
That might offer up arms against thee, who
Doth sing to me in lip, eye, curl, and brow
And are the Eden which I have long sought.
Documentation / Explanation (Razo):
This is one of several sonnets I wrote back in 2002 when I was in a Renaissance poetry class and I wanted to try writing a few different love poems. It's really nothing spectacular.
