All English Sonnets
My darling, when I wrote to you to-day
My words outpoured from me in dizzy state
But then I wondered, what I want to say
Will reach you on some future far off date.
This thought was entertained and doubt was hosted.
With every word I wrote, it grew and grew-
My letter was completed, sealed and posted
But I remained unhappy. This I knew.
And in this sorry state of mind, I erred,
In wondering, what to think and what to do?
Because, because of this my need bestirred,
And due to this I rushed and came to you.
With love, I knew, my letter will be read
But it was good to reach you in its stead.
