Poetry by Robert Stone: Reclaimed dusts, a sonnet

Reclaimed from dusts
- a sonnet looking toward the future
If I could live forever, would I know
too many joys and sorrows shaping me
until the give and take both fast and slow
remade old me into a me not free.

If I could die forever, might I go
pretending truth and hope for countless times
until the lie and shade turned shine and glow
revealed new me reclaimed from dusts and grimes.

If I could love forever, could I show
specific care and longing for the good
until above the dark pure light bestow
reworked tuned me who will be understood.

Though life continually up would grow,
oblivion relentless down will mow.

- Robert Stone, 12 May 2013
