Sonnet No. 3 (Repost)

by Kate Demeree

Tell me what you see when you look at me

Deep inside, behind eyes of darkest blue

A woman whose living in fantasy

Or a heart of innocence who never knew

That dreams are left behind with childhood.

As the amber rays signal day is through

Brilliant red shadows dance where you once stood.

Ghosts of a happier time when I held you.

Cold wind that cries in the shadowed evening

Still weeps with the coming of morning light.

Foolish heart for it’s continued believing

In wishes granted, dreams outliving the night.

Once in my dreamtime I viewed the brass ring

Will I wake with a tear or learn to sing…

in my dream, you not only wake up with the ring, and not around the collar, but it is worth more than a dollar, and there is no need to holler when it is slipped o'er love's knuckle and may I say dreamer, you are a dream.

Your sonnet is a thing of beauty. I know how difficult it was for me to write a sonnet, but your's seems so easy and flows so naturally. The love, the sadness and the possibility of resurrection are beautifully written here. Thanks.

this was a worthy revisit, Kate. loved it the first time I read it.,. love is as much if not more now that I am a much older man and am touched more by the message.
