A Sonnet by Evan Guilford-Blake The Society January 23, 2014 Beauty, Poetry 1 Comment What wonder! – In the arcs described by wings Aloft and floating on the fair spring air. In graceful glides, parabolas of dare Defying, in ascent, all earthy things. Blue light this, that arises o’er their sails, To waves whose crests on gentle billows soar Across this sea unshadowed by a shore, Undaunted by the shifts of tides or gales. Gravity, your pull has no attraction For such as these that blithely dream; no care For this, your claim to men. We stand and stare Caught in circling dreams and lissome actions… What wonder!: Freedom’s birth observ’d in flight And named in timeless crafts of wind and light. Evan Guilford-Blake is a playwright and poet living in Georgia. Featured Image: “Sunrise on the Bay of Fundy” by William Bradford (1823-1892).
