Sunday Sonnet

Today’s poem is from The Reality Street Book of Sonnets. When I Googled the poet, I was very sad to find out that John Gibbens had died of cancer in 2015. He wrote numerous books of poetry, as well as writing songs, and working on Fleet Street as a sub-editor.

I think this poem is brilliant.
