The Sonnet Project: Sonnet # 5


Sonnet # 5

Around my house and through the valleys deep

The shards of snowy glass that pave the stone

While all that breathes is soundly in their sleep

I measure how the yellow stars have shone.

Whenst I have ‘woken in the break of day

When dawn’s new eye escapes in endless light

A cold beginning that has gone astray

Turn’d now much hotter than the sun is bright.

I see the plains burn up and so the grass

To run, to where? If only I was told

By houses, farms and cities now I pass

And to myself I very chiefly scold

From ice to fire went my world astray

The mountains shiver and burn up, they say.
