Light Sonnet

If I were to compare you to the light

That shines forth from the sun

Only to be dismayed come night,

And your brilliance done and gone,


I’d become sore at such a thought

That you might have left me

Alone in the darkness to rot

On another to shine happily.


But lo! Here comes the light again

With blinding abundance and

Sunshine for the earth’s kin,

Dark be banished with every strand.


So when you go away tonight,

I beg your return with the light
