A sonnet written in response to my feelings about what really matters in life being love, life, joy, beauty, light and a sense of goodness. September 2012

A Sonnet by Clive Williams

stand in the quiet wood and wait for morning
when cobweb silk snares light's first waking sigh
and jewelled grass bows to the slate grey dawning
and veils of mist enchant the meadow high
fleet comes the deer so cautious in its grace
yet nature wise becomes the dappled wood
and knows the presence in this hallowed place
where all creation then before her stood
and poorer creature man who cannot see
with endless thought that drowns his fretted head
that life is there for all eternity
on leaf strewn paths where woodland creatures tread

and love will outlast each passing season
when matter matters not and joy is reason
