Spring Sonnet

Sitting alone.  Am seeing too much ……..

Outside the window ….. all the promise of Spring

In people who appear to be going somewhere

And couples who do not need to go anywhere –

Playing with brown babies in sun-suits

Or strolling arm in arm to church with summer hats.

Well-cared-for dogs

Or non-communicating matrimony,

The new car’s first outing to the Sunday sea.

These seem to be enough to cover over the cracks.

Will last year’s little girls come running,

Roller skates clasped tightly ?

They will come in the likeness of Mary Quant

Hand in hand with the men of tomorrow.

Portsmouth Spring 1966

  1. Hi my name is Cameron and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I came to your Spring Sonnet – My Poems, Thoughts, Dreams and Questions website and noticed you could have a lot more hits. I have found that the key to running a popular website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get keyword targeted visitors from and they let you try their service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my site. http://cwby.us/8z
