Like the grains of sand down the hour glass,


Or like the carousel round and round


Ever charging on merry-go-round,


The seconds, minutes and the hours pass.


 


And as pass the days, weeks and the years,


So pass longings, passions and torments,


Ebb away tears, doubts, lust and laments,


Till new passion, new torment appears.


 


Torment follows passion, new tears flow,


Ebb the tears, giving way to new lust,


Knowing that new torments lie ahead,


 


Yet on and on the merry round go


Till everything turns into grey dust


And finally death lays a soft bed.

(Based on my longer poem “Perpetuum Mobile”


written in 1954 in Hungarian.)

Greetings to all your many facets. This is interesting, since sonnets are sort of a hobby of mine. Interesting view is correct.

Wow Peter! This is tremendous! I loved it and I'm impressed with your style! I once took a poetry class and failed sonnets miserably...hehe

I also dropped that class because it was making me doubt my own abilities...
