All English Sonnets
FINITE AND INFINITE
From finite to infinite, on this way,
The journey can be short, can be long,
Pre-meditated kiss, labored song,
Can wariness engender. The foray,
Spontaneous and unplanned, can be short,
Though really unending and prolonged.
The vastness of all nature can be thronged,
In tininess of lover’s tiny wart.
And likewise a simple song, or a stolen kiss,
Can change a moment into eternity,
Can grant it vastness and eternal bliss,
And unprecedented clarity.
The finite is infinite, in between,
The methods of conception intervene.
