Big Lift Ferry Poem F176

Would you rather be –
A star in someone’s night sky –
Or be their night sky?

The fog bank is closed –
But the mist bank is open –
Late this Monday night

The night feels colder
Without a moon in the sky –
Though it gives no warmth

One Stanza Poem O013

My mistress has a heart and a set of eyes
That beckon my attention –
Whilst they – in truth – advise
That I should stay away if I am wise –
Her heart is a beacon in the night –
Whilst her eyes are beacons in the light

Sonnet IV

I could compare you to a summer’s day,
Or, if you prefer, to a winter’s night.
I could compare you to how children play,
Or what they bring in pleasure and delight.
Perhaps your tastes prefer the sugars sweet,
Or would the feel of velvet touch you more?
Perhaps the sounds that hearts of lovers beat,
Or twinkling stars are stuff that you care for?
Pick any flower blooming in the spring,
Or any leaf that’s turning in the fall,
Pick stones of worth, bright rainbows, songs birds sing,
Or oceans, clouds – pick anything at all!
All lovely things I can compare you to,
But there’s not one that can compare to you.
