World's lone sonnet grandmaster. Shakespeare's Sonnet 1 describes him as “the world’s fresh ornament and only herald to the gaudy spring."

Much as I've yearned to be with you anew,
each passing year my wish is unfulfilled.
Redress this, please, it can be quickly willed
lest I forget the dearie that I knew.

In your delay, my life has gone askew
nor can my being be with joy infilled.
I can't recall the state of being thrilled.
O please appear and prove your love is true!

I miss you so much, come within my view!
I've got some ailments, though I won't be killed.
Not just that doctor and the pills are billed:
I want my full health, come to my rescue!

If you'd appear, my life I could renew
because in healing you are highly skilled.
