Form: Brisbane Sonnet
Because the sun shines, I feel the warmth of hope
Through cold and biting winds, I see the signs
And know the sleeping Earth returns to life.
I stare past trails left by icicle ropes
On to the horizon where Spring reclines
In waiting for an end to Winter’s strife.
And when I gaze into my crystal ball
I see my silver Lady dancing there
A spark within the Winter’s darkest hour
And in her love once more I’m standing tall
I know there is no reason to despair
As life returns from death within her pow’r.
Oh, Lady hear my prayer once more tonight
And grant me peace within your holy light
