All River Sage Sonnets


One stolen moment from the worldly cares,

One wanton thought, one lone unhurried cruise,

One sensuous smile that beckons and ensnares

And lingers balm – like on some bleeding bruise.

Is dearer than all wealth and all repute

Which labored effort wins and men possess,

Indulge in ostentation and compute

The cost with genuine pride. Nevertheless

They find that all this ruthless drive has failed

To satisfy some vague but restless need,

One whispering melody which goes unhailed

Is irreparable loss to us indeed.

One longing kiss that lessens stress and strain

Is pregnant with more pleasure than all gain.
