~for Seasons~ - Poem by Sinnaminsun Sinnaminsun

Oh ambered leaf encased within my hold,
As fallen freinds most oft fade in dismay.
Grasp tight autumnal secrets to unfold,
A frosty dew descends upon in play.

Coming winter wresling within white,
While autumn slowly lifts to say gooodbye.
Frost has bitten as her wings extend in flight,
Next season on her carpet all will lie.

So harshly cold to not revoke chill's wrath,
Icy spokes your braches covet no more.
Winter no mercy lost souls upon paths,
Soon budding springtime, unleash showers pour.

Greeeness, flowered promises kiss the land,
Waits summer to extend her warming hand.

    Hi John, a sonnet has 14 lines, written in iambic pentameter (unstressed-stressed syllables-10 syllables in each line) , with the following rhyme pattern: abab cdcd efef gg. Most sonnets are about love, and usually pose a question, then respond, and then the final two lines sum everything up. You don't always have to follow all the rules, especially when first learning, as I am doing :) (Report) Reply

    a haiku about autumn from me:

    autumn rides
    on the leaves
    to the next season
