So that the white in me turns black
Before I shed off a single milk teeth
If I vacate that soothsome seat

All the while it stands boldly upright;

Sonnet 003: Look In Thy Glass, And Tell The Face Thou Viewest

Whose fresh repair if now thou not renewest,
Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother.

Making all these decisions, contemplating, wondering where they'll all lead

A Song In The Desert

To decree which rock-ridge shall receive, shall be chosen for targe of it?
Which crown among palms shall go down, by the thunderbolt broken;
While the floods drown the sere wadis where no bud is token?

Sonnet 008: Music To Hear, Why Hear'st Thou Music Sadly?

Or else receiv'st with pleasure thine annoy?

By the late sun caressed; slight hazes shroud
