Oh Shakespeare

Oh Shakespeare, Shakespeare scribe your words of love Inside my mind despite the clutter there Then speak of starless skies and heaven’s glove With runes of poets dreaming everywhere Beside my bed the orchid buds, its leaves Like sugary dew in beautiful light Compose the sweetest verse you know that weaves Its golden thread to kiss the shadowed night Where trysts are sweet like woven braids of rhyme My quill is dry and words refuse to stay So please become my muse with words divine In winter’s silent snow or spring’s full sway Oh Shakespeare, Shakespeare please release the flow Of ink, my pen desires the lover’s glow

Shakespear is, amazingly, underrated. Your verse for a muse, for inspiration, has gone to the correct source. If one cannot find inspiration in the compositions of Shakespeare, then where might one find excellence? I particularly appreciated "words devine", "sugary dew". Often, when wondering what poet to read, reading Shakespeare, poetry and more, answers the question.

This is quite a unique and wonderful sonnet. Your metered count is spot on as are your rhymes. The verbiage you use is well chosen for your subject. The lilting flow of the romantic plea is simply delicious and the wording couldn't be better--an earnest plea to the master to be your muse if only for just a moment to write a romantic poem. Most enjoyable. Lora

Beautiful post Cheyenne - a yearn to master the great - and be able to inspire others through written words. I favor the poems of Plath - but it's a personal preference, Maya as well - so many from ages ago wrote the most beautiful poems like Dickenson- Ah...just to read poetry is on of life's pleasure that so many ignore. I imagine they watch reality t.v for excitement and inspiration. (Smile) There's nothing in this poem I would change - there are lines that stand out - Beside my bed the orchid buds, its leaves Like sugary dew in beautiful light Compose the sweetest verse you know that weaves This being my fav verse - sugary dew - how poignant! Its golden thread to kiss the shadowed night December itself is a month full of anticipation and inspiration - I hope to read more from you, as always I'm in awe, blessings, Deni

Just my kind of poem. Utterly beautiful in every way. Not being a fan at all of modern poetry any more than I am of modern art, I can say best seen here in along time. Thanks. Kevin.
