Sonnet 223

What riches so to be immersed in thought,
And in deep thinking, shift these thoughts to you,
Forgetting thus the battles that I’ve fought,
Immersed instead ‘midst peace you bring me to;
Then can I smile as you in visions twirl,
And at your pleasure, hold you close to me,
So ‘round the ballroom of my mind we whirl,
Uplifting hearts in joyful frivolity;
There in your eyes I see a precious truth,
And in your voice I hear delightful sounds,
Your body’s warmth, my essence so does sooth,
There so my soul in gaiety abounds:
What wealth a simple thought of you can bring,
That even heavied heart can romp and sing!
