So Sweet Unrest

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
