Truncated Sonnet: ''A Sonnet Begets Life'' (1st draft)

A Sonnet begets life.
Joy, her child, leaves her womb,
songs that transcend the tomb
and dull the Reaper's scythe!
Ah! Joy belittles strife;
such odes, as from bedrooms
(without unfeeling gloom),
make mother of a wife.
When bards compose, ardent
wax the virgin Sonnets
with their pens: eloquent
the more, beauty begets
desire; then makes pregnant
(with bliss which ne'er forfeits).
