A sonnet for dreams

The message of a thousand words
some to laugh and some to cry
Fluttering through like hummingbirds
never to stop until they die
never to stop to wonder why
Slipping away like a snatch of a song
quietly, quietly, a gentle sigh
never to stay for very long
only to pause then move along
going back to where they grow
only a moment to sing along
and only a moment to briefly know
brightly in the night it gleams
but quickly quickly go the dreams

Great poem, sorry to say it's not quite a sonnet (the number of syllables is of a few times - you have mostly 8 syllable lines, but some with 7, 9 or 10 instead), nevertheless I'm glad you posted it.
