Fourteen Beautiful Birds On Wings Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

Fourteen Beautiful Birds On Wings

Rating: 3.8

When bakers packed twelve plus two more to claim
One dozen, a sonneteer sets fourteen
Sweet lines arrayed in an eight plus six frame,
And the magic marvels and ever-green
Remains, whist the fledglings that would well hatch
Ah what gorgeous birds be! Fluttering to fly
In time, together in a single batch,
Or in varied formations that'd mind defy.
The eight in front propose a theme so rife,
Six to follow forming a counterpoint,
Resolving - ah, sonnet's true leitmotif,
A Volta, how poets prefer to point,
Out, and last two, twain wings of a couplet,
Summing up the song, what a pure nugget!

Ah, gorgeous birds to be, ready to fly/In time together in one single batch....these two lines are the kernel of this wonderful sonnet sir. I am jealous of you sir because I find lot of difficulties in composing sonnets but you do it so easily and skillfully with all ingredients of a good sonnet intact!

Thank you so much to read this 2013 poem and commenting on it. You have a creative mind dear poem and once you start writing sonnets you'll find that they are quite easy. In fact all poems with a set structure are easier in comparison.
