"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.
