It’s a Sonnet, Doggone it!

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.


But, bark! What lights softly through yawnder broken window?

Herewith, I giveth thee my sonnet:

songs pleasure

WordPress Writing 201, Assignment Ten. Prompt: pleasure. Form: sonnet . Device: apostrophe.

    Thou givest well. Verily. A celebration of the primacy of song. A song that deserves a song. Or a sonnet. I wonder if this will truly be your last. Well done. Thank you!

      Thank you! I don’t know about writing another. Sonnet writing is a bit of a strain, and I don’t want to hurt my brain. (Rhyming unintentional). Thanks for commenting.

    Well, sonnets are songs, as most poetry is. Maybe you’ll simply write song lyrics. Which would be a great feat, too (“great feat”–I have no idea what kind of rhyme that might be).
