Sonnet 1 : I Do Give A Damn
I am fighting once more to find the words
That will surely show what you mean to me.
Unambiguous and true. But I’m worlds
Away from finding the phrases that will be
Definitive, right; “well formed” to quote
Your eloquence. Yet I will continue
To juggle with words, look back on who wrote
With power and poise, to broaden my view.
My eye now rests on you Miss O’ Mara,
And despite classic lines uttered by Rhett,
If you choose to play Scarlett O’Hara
The depth of my love I will not forget:
I need you to know this verse is no sham,
‘Cause frankly my dear, I do give a damn.
