    Congratulations on your completing 200 poems. Your Sonnets are a delight. Your Haiku's are quotable cuties. Your Nature poems are beauties. I am always elated reading your poems. Keep up the tempo. I came to know you after you gave me an encouraging comment for my poem 'Bird's Lament' and since then I look forward to see your new poems and your thoughtful comments. Wish you all the best.

    The visit to the poetry page of David Wood is wonderful for many strong reasons of good reading, especially the SONNET form in the modern shape. Those students who consult this site for the purpose of studying poetry, as poemhunter is serving the needs of Cambridge students as well as the research scholars who are working on Explication de Texte, they can consult this page as the living example of modern sonnet written in traditional rhyme-scheme, mostly The English sonnet i.e Shakespearean. The Rhyme-scheme and the rhyming analysis is available here...David's sonnets are lucid in diction, natural in flow and easy to follow...the following information is added from the web source, as this is the right place for it:

    A sonnet is a poetic form which originated in Italy; the Sicilian poet Giacomo da Lentini is credited with its invention.[1] The term sonnet derives from the Italian word sonetto, meaning little song, and by the thirteenth century it signified a poem of fourteen lines that follows a strict rhyme scheme and specific structure. Conventions associated with the sonnet have evolved over its history. Writers of sonnets are sometimes called sonneteers, although the term can be used derisively. One of the best-known sonnet writers is William Shakespeare, who wrote 154 of them (not including those that appear in his plays) . A Shakespearean, or English, sonnet consists of fourteen lines written in iambic pentameter, in which a pattern of an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable is repeated five times. The rhyme scheme in a Shakespearean sonnet is a-b-a-b, c-d-c-d, e-f-e-f, g-g; the last two lines are a rhyming couplet.

    Nice poetry David Wood! ! !

Best Poem of David Wood


Bluebells carpet the woodland floor
Packed so tightly that insects tip-toe
Softly and quietly between them.
Their beauty unlocks a woodland door

With such colour of delicate blue,
And a fragrance that is heaven sent.
They droop their heads in the spring rain,
With their beauty making all things new.

Their magic weaves a pleasant spell
A sea of blue that meanders in the breeze
And floats delicately over the forest floor,
Their fragrance creates a delicate smell.

Nature now has all its beauty brought
To the fore before summer casts its ...

Read the full of Bluebells

Golden Leaves

Autumn ushers in the golden blaze of leaf
When every tree delightfully looks their best,
And long shadows point with fingers brief
With the sun slung on a low horizon blest.

The pale days, now shorter as of late,
Mark the end of summer and the eve of winters fall.
Blackberries sprinkled in the hedge soon to make
A feast of a pie at the end of summer ball.
