50 After 50: A Cycle of Sonnets About Love & Hope

Standard

The Moment Infinite

 

When I believe that goodness is in the grave

And that the oceans of joy are at low-tide

Then I remember the beauty that can save

And the gentleness that can through darkness guide:

You, rock over whom light and dark glide and flow

Down, like cascading floods of smiles!

And then the laughter rolls and casts its glow

Upon this life emptied by thoughts of many styles.

Shall I say I have seen love dying quietly

Between the dawn and dusk of romances

In hearts that have not given up their stances

Or shall I rather drink hemlock gladly

And soar unbound for one moment infinite

On the broken wing of hope within it?
