Sonnet #6

by Gavin M Roy

when i consider myself
in talents ever swaying eye
i take books from the shelf
and read Keats' poetic cries.

i look on in awe
in wonder of what's been said
for my talent is so raw
i know nothing of what i've read

like a fresh boy
with no impression
no intellectual joy
with misunderstanding comes depression.

oh how i long to learn
for understanding is what i yearn
