Tenderly Embrace (A Sonnet) ©

Andrea R M Fletcher
NY, USA
2004

O' summer thou art of brilliant days
Thou dance under the terrestrial sun above
Night longs for thy brilliance at bay
Across the meadow grass they coupled like dove
Slowly their eyes look to the luminous stars
As moonlight swept across the planets, delight
While joy and peace flows over them forming bars
For admiration and bounty in the heavens light
Their glorious love shall remain faithful at heart
They will not lose interest for the love they share
Nor shall they diminish such elegant work of art
For their love is the love that erases all-spare
As long as within each, the love they see
As long as they embrace tenderly to thee.
