Sonnet 36

From you the graceful rose moon is rising
So, I am proud of your subtly sweet trim
The Vernal that I love in everything
That diamond waves singing, they are slim

Yet nor time taught me how is waving smell
But I have missed a vivid flesh, come to
My nose on your hair that I want to tell
Be like the sparkling long river grew

Oh, you are greater than the crystal white!
It is tender the mouth of poignant rose
I play guitar for your eyes of delight
Being not more or lose what to all those

Please honey, don’t leave me and go away!
Foreshadowing a miserable play.
