~~~ Nordic Yore ~~~

Updated on May 14, 2015

~ Nordic Yore ~

An English Sonnet

Over the quiet planes of liegeless winds,

Whereth spirits be meld by hallowed vine;

Art resolved echoed pains o' nameless sins,

Amidst witless sorrows of father time.

Feint calico jewels 'cross ivory hill'ck,

Disappear thro' veils of a middling May;

Mighty oaks overruled by sunset silk,

Gloaming shimmers bamboozle nature's fray.

Today be the 'morrow of yesterday,

Beseeched by love in all the wrong places;

Serendipitous minds and hearts replay,

Hope flickers with incandescent traces.


So eyne stealeth beauty yet still remain,

Loyal summers, 'mongst royal blue domain.

Ye Ende

      You conjure up wonderful atmosphere, R.Q. The photos are stunning and there is sadness with a tinge of hope. Lovely.

      Hope you're enjoying some Spring sunshine.

      Phrases like "sunset silk" and "royal blue domain" conjure up such heavenly images; you work is truly inspiring. I must also mention the beautiful pictures. Thank you for this model sonnet.

      Glad to have captured a certain atmosphere Ann and thank you for dropping by with some wonderful commentary.

      Just finished work and it starts raining here after a couple of days of lovely sunshine lol!

      Hope you're still having a great time in foreign parts.

      Hard to picture a "mighty oak" being overruled by anything yet even they aren't close to the beauty of a silky sunset with all it's vibrant colors.

      Great poetry

      Prince RQ,

      I chose to read this poem first because of the date it was published: the day of my mom's funeral. And, how right it feels to have done so. You capture the essence of sorrow and still there is a hope interwoven. Thank you for being you and for your beautiful way with words. Voted up and shared my dear friend.

      Princess Kim;

      My sincerest condolences again to you and your family at this most trying of times and can only hope that your generous heart is feeling a little less sore than it was the day before; thank you for such warm lines and sending blessings your way too with thoughts of peace and tranquility to soothe a turbid epoch.

      (from ' not quite a Prince; of that I'm convinced ':)


      P.S. ( Don't neglect yourself because people care about you ;).
