What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


Long, long ago as poets know.
A sonnet was a little song
without rules you had to follow.
There was no way you could go wrong.
Petrarch invented a fixed form
and then Will Shakespeare altered it.
Both are accepted as the norm
although they vary quite a bit.
Since Will most poets had a try
to write a sonnet in their way.
The hide bound purists can't deny
there’s many sonnet forms today.
Like any art fine poetry
evolves and improves constantly.

    Ivor, for me it is the best medium to explain feelings, thoughts, philosophies, and entertain one at the same time. Like you I love poetry. Enjoyed the poem. Bob
