Collected Poems of Henry Derozio: Preface by Manu Samriti Chander; Edited by Amardeep Singh

Sonnet ("O! could my wandering, breeze-pinioned mind...")

O! could my wandering, breeze-pinioned mind 
True brotherhood in earthborn spirit find. 
One that might ever on unflagging wings 
Companion me in my imaginings, 
One that from earth could take its earthliness. 
And robe it with the mind’s own light — ’twould bless 
The wheeling of existence — we should rise 
Like wild twin comets hurrying through the skies, 
Or swift as starshoots dart into the chasms 
Of earlier planets. These enthusiasms 
Which ceaseless glow in my volcanic brain. 
Because unshared, have ever brought me pain, 
And left my mind in dark, despairing mood 
To feel, and think upon its solitude. —
