"Her Painful Picture Not a Listless Lecture"

Her Painful Picture Not
a Listless Lecture

A New American Sonnet
for Someone I Cannot Forget

Chary Cherry, ever wary

of the daily dic-tion-ar-y,

sent to me her painful picture:

not fictitious listless lecture

or contrived, derived conjecture,

but her soul's own native suture

for my fragile compound fracture,

giving brave new brilliant juncture

to renew my sail-boat structure.

Thank you, willful, skillful Nature,

for this female sky-sail creature

searching with her poignant picture

new horizons to enrich her,

now become for me . . . a lasting casting fixture

in the fantasy . . . of my own glory story's future.
