Many just don't realize how diffi...
Hard it can be to write a sonnet that
Rhymes and has only ten syllables per
Line, or how tremendously intricate
It can be to make complete thoughts in one
Stanza and not have it bleed over to
The next. I'm vexed at how perplexed people
Write old fashiony, afraid of the new
Its like they think The Bard will roll over
In his grave, angry that they use plain speech
To deliver their message, as if time
Froze in 1583 - but not me.
Just because the rules are old doesn't mean
That language has to be - or not to BE.
***Not a standard sonnet. Alternating lines do not rhyme, but still this is a sonnet in that the lack of rhyming adds to the point of how difficult it can be to write a sonnet. It wasn't intentional, I just wasn't paying attention!
