Todays writing prompt encourages me to do something even more different to yesterday, today’s challenge is a poem! I cannot remember the last time I wrote a poem, let alone a decent one, let’s be honest, that has probably never happened! That being said, I’m going to give it a go.
Since I’m not a poet (and I know it!) I have googled ‘what is a sonnet?’ According to my good friend, the internet; A sonnet is a poem of an expressive thought or idea made up of 14 lines, each line being 10 syllables long. Its rhymes are arranged according to one of two schemes (either Italian or English.) I’m not 100% sure if my sonnet is right, let alone decent so please try and keep the judgy comments at bay!
