NOTE: January 3, 2019 ~ It’s been over three years since I wrote this sonnet, and it’s still the only one I’ve managed. The dVerse prompt today is the sonnet. The form still confounds me, but I will stretch my comfort zone and practice writing another one. Maybe two. In the meantime, I am sharing this poem, and am most welcoming of feedback. Thank you.

The final assignment in the WordPress Writing 201 course is to write a sonnet. Not my style at all, although I have to admit I’ve never tried to write one before.
At any rate, I hiked up my Shakespeare shorts and dove in, and as you can see below, my muse Chules chipped in by demonstrating his poetry quothe-ing and theatrical emoting skills.
Herewith, I giveth thee my sonnet:
WordPress Writing 201, Assignment Ten. Prompt: pleasure. Form: sonnet . Device: apostrophe.
