Sonnet VI: Of The Joy Of Life

20 Dec


Outwardly bound now, my spirit does rise,
inhaling all beauty I then survey,
and with joyful breath, I sing to the skies
my delight of this world, to live this way;
my soul bolder for earth’s abound pleasure,
all of its sorrows unfounded in me,
for I am alive by greater measure,
and still my heart to all passions that be;
now, with sky unfolding on my behalf,
I sing my praise for nature’s reverence;
let feign martyrs cry, while jesters may laugh,
for my sprit has found deliverance;
and as these words bear my humble acclaim,
let gods speak of joy when they speak my name.
