Another simple syllabic sonnet from Coo & Co :>)


Returning to Bruyères in 1910,
   some years before the Second World War rout,
he brought his drafting book and fine-nib pen
   in hopes to overcome his writing drought –
and this he did, upon vivacious streets
   all flanked by merry red-roofed shops and homes,
and by the castle, where astounding feats
   had been performed, as told in tunes and tomes;
his Muse sang sweetest, though, in town surrounds,
   in mountain woods with sunlight through the pines,
the calls of birds and deer his favourite sounds,
   enticing as the region's finest wines –
and Sylvie there, a girl he used to know,
he'd loved her 'til her death, so long ago.

How beautiful. The gentle alliteration of "told in tunes and tomes." The red-roofed shops and homes, and of course Sylvie. It's not even May, and you are bringing us flowers of the fairest! (Poetically speaking.) Thanks so much for this fine sonnet.
