Sonnet 85

Immortalized, her beauty etched in ink,
Lives on, that those unborn may come to read,
And, lost in lilting lyrics there bethink
That such an angel once did live and breathe.
Pure beauty that enchants with but a smile;
All gazers yet with jaded sight might see,
A nymph of such exquisite grace and style,
With gold spun heart of gracious liberty.
Though some may doubt, I swear these words are true;
An earthly goddess once was heaven sent
To dwell with mortals and to there imbue,
Sweet views of paradise – in but a glance.
With love supreme, she did the world engrace…
And I was blessed to gaze upon her face.
