Sonnet X. My Dearest Muse, I Truly Miss You So!
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.
