OK. :) I'm back. I've committed to try to post more frequently now that summer is over and the school term has started again.

Here is a sonnet I wrote last week. (I still think I like Sonnet II better- what do you think?) As always, suggestions are more than welcome!


Considering the present sufferings

Not worthy to be thought of or compared

To glory that shall burn away these things

And leave our souls and hearts and senses bared,

Some of the ransomed lovely ones in Christ

Refused the dying world's attentions

And named the named of Jesus at a price,

To obtain the better resurrection.

These ones held true and loyal to one Love

And watched their other loves die all around,

The ones for whom the world was not enough,

Of whom the world has been unworthy found,

O Church, are you to be the Bride of GOD?

You have not yet resisted unto blood!

Wow, StrongJoy! This is lovely. I can't decide which sonnet to like better. They are both so well written.

Hello StrongJoy! Thanks for commenting over at my oom, and for adding me to your links. You certainly don't need to apologize, though, since I don't have a blogroll yet myself! One of these days...
I am not actually familiar with the Faery Queen. I know what it is, but I have not read it.
And oh yes! Europe has it's charms, but I'd rather be in America or England than Germany. I'm dying to go to Oxford; I'd study there, if it didn't cost a fortune. Hmm... You, Raora, Lizbelle and I will have to pool our resources and make an England trip one of these days :).

This one is pretty but I agree with you the Sonnet II is better - I just went and read that one - it was beautiful!! :D

To the KING be all the glory!

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15

This is a beautiful and powerful verse. Thank you for it! God is going to use you to Glorify Him in big ways!
