    Sonnet – So Sweet Unrest

    By Peter S. Quinn

    Stars are lonely though steadfast in their way
    In the gleaming splendor on so brightly
    Of the eternal lids of the nightly
    Till the twilight morn again meets the new day
    In flowing of light in its glow up and lay
    Like perfect sky coming up so lightly
    In its hours of tender of moods and rightly
    When a dawn gives colors from falling gray
    That flowed on in its softly rising leap
    When again my dreams to the earth are awake
    For each reality to comprehend and keep
    And the heart again to sleep from its ache
    All moods from before night - so sweet unrest!
    That those hours of dim set up on my breast
