All River Sage Sonnets


I live surrounded by my worldly wares,

In wealth reside; this very fact I rue,

And look at all possessions. Furtive stares,

I throw at happiness but find no clue

To win one heady moment free of cares;

And feel it melting on my parching tongue;

To sing all lyrics that are still unsung;

And frolic unperturbed like mating pairs.

I see one laborer, then in genuine mirth,

When breaking stones, one moment he espies;

He wipes his perspiration from the eyes;

When sees his love and rolls on dusty earth:

My every moment with such pain is fraught;

I know that love is wealth, wealth is not.
