She who is far more beautiful than nature

While the red of a rose may come and go,
where the light of day is evanescent.
The blush of her cheek will forever glow,
the light of her face is incandescent.

Nature can be harsh toward a flower,
it can twist and destroy all in a storm.
I grow fonder of her more each hour,
for the brush of her skin is always warm.

Though the beauty of stars consumes the skies,
and the soul of which will never weaken;
the strength of earth is deep within her eyes,
her grace is my everlasting beacon.

Though her body and mind consume my thought,
sadly, oh sadly she cares for me not.

We had to write a sonnet for english class and I really took the assignment to heart and went all out on it. it took 5 hours to perfect and only one line was kept the same as in the original version but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

The meaning of life is a question that you have already answered.

I relly liked the ending and the description you used in this. You should definitely get some more published
