Haunted Dreams...............Pushkin Sonnet

Canst thy not stay sweet, dreams of desire
Shalt not deep pleasures e`er come true,
Desired dreams of love to feed these fires
Thus passion burn fierce as fantasys grew;
Dark shapes from billowing clouds above
Ne-er serpent nor demons haunts this love,
Harmonious visions of emotions shine thro`
Weird aurora`s predicting a mystical view;
Haunting spectres invading an unrest sleep
Dewdrop sprays of spiritual mystified mist
Awaken unto reality with thy gentle kiss
Unrest sleep thro`this night of passion deep
To cast shadows of nightmares to a close
Rest sweet love, upon petals of damask rose.
