All English Sonnets
I heard something and woke up with a start,
From deepest depth of slumber, gravely vexed,
What startled me, demands my throbbing heart-
And made me so uneasy, unrelaxed.
My children are asleep, calm and quiet,
My spouse is smiling in her dreamful sleep
And silent, soundless, windless, is the night,
Why restless demons on me vigil keep,
Why in my chest, my heart so loudly pounds,
I feel no lurking danger, threatening noise;
Discern no rustling movement, outward sounds,
But something has still shattered all my poise.
Ah! may be my sub-conscious future sees.
And wants to warn me with its prophecies.
