Sonnet Making for John Shawcross
Mentor, Nestor, Chiron: John Shawcross, Friend,
With bibliographical mind stops to
Consider a question to guide us through
That Miltonic labyrinth while we bend
A line beyond intent, meaning to render
Our design to what sound we thought was true.
Through conversation, he pours out what knew:
>From Eden his voice whispers through the wind.
Eyes rest on a copy of Milton’s Prose
Straining to remember questions asked
During a breakfast here in Tennessee.
Those unfinished thoughts will bloom like a rose
Tilled in gardens far from Paradise tasked
With loving labors that set our minds free.
