    Relating how to write a correct sonnet at nowadays. Who can tell this exactly what should be followed or in what forms must be used? There are many forms have been talked in the past. I know it consists totally 14 lines A(4,4,4,2): B(4,4,2,2,2) or C(8,6) and rhymes mostly uses B type abba abba + cd, cd, cd (=14 lines) . But, there are really many styles were used in the past centuries. It nearly no fixed regulation at all. The B style is more popular until now.
    I want to hear your opinion....

    Hi everyone, Just thought I'd say that I never read many poems until my granddaughter who is 10 needs to read poetry as an assignment in school and that's how I came to the Poemhunter site to try and help her. I have never written any poems in my life but found it to be very satisfying to actually write a few, now I feel like emersing myself in words. I always thought that poetry had to rhyme but after reading several from other poets I find that freeform is very intense. But I hope you enjoy mine as I continue to evolve. Thanks. Ron

      Ronald, WELCOME...., you'll also find that some 'so-called' poems make no sense, are not punctuated properly, lack rhythm and contain spelling errors. There seems to be no rules here, we all utilize ' ... more

    Hi R&R Workshoppers Most of what I write does not follow strict

    traditional formats, I tend to focus on imagery, word creation,

    and internal Rhythm and movement within the text.

    However one of my poems - 'It's Better With the Good Eye ' - is a

    Villanelle, and I was very happy with how it worked, although I found writing

    strict rules was difficult. I don't like strict forms, sonnets etc. easy, and

    feel that image and wonder suffer at the hand of form.

    All the more respect therefore to Shakespeare and the others who succeeded.

    All comments welcome.

    Thank You All.

      I disagree with your statement that 'image and wonder suffer at the hand of form' A true poet is he who DOES NOT LET image and wonder suffer at the hand of form. Content sans Form is as bad as Form s ... more

    Almost all of my poetry-life I have written traditional verse following the guidlines of the traditionalists originators.I put alot of work in my poetry as these lines do not pour out of me in refined finished form.I write about anything that catches my Muse's fancy and I hope to inspire you when you read my poems.The two great things that mark a real poet is to inspire some else to write creatively and to make someone say 'I wish I had written that poem'.Best wishes to all who like to write in the lyrical style.

    What are the importance and the points on the sentences?

    Would you tell me any hints on the Rhythm? What that mean on them? Are there in each sentence needs jumping sound like a horse? I need the opinion and hints about this topic.
