Penning Sonnets Or Pinning The Tails To Sonnets Poem by Susan Williams

Penning Sonnets Or Pinning The Tails To Sonnets

Rating: 5.0

I respect those poets
who can pen sonnets
and other rigidly ruled poems-
They are extremely talented
to be able to do this
and still enjoy the write! !
They have my utmost respect.
my admiration is unchecked.
I am not at all respectable
I find it hard to be simultaneously
and poetic
and emotionally moving,
when fitting syllables and rhymes into rigid formats!
It's like trying to fit a hypo into a corset
if you ask me.

As you rightly observed, penning sonnets is not an easy task if one sticks to the accepted pattern rigorously. I could write only five or six sonnets so far adhering to the right syllable count and rhythm. Your comparison at the end is quite apt Susan! A well adjudged write on sonnets....! Formality and strict adherence to rules always destroy spontaneity! A sure 10

I thank you for your kindness but I must admit to a certain lack of talent for getting fire and emotion across when stuffing words into cages. Thank you for enjoying me at my level. I appreciate it!

I am officially getting old now. I used to be a perfect speller- oh, no, now it looks like I need a proofreader- how annihilating... the word should be hippo not hypo... oh, I am crushed... I thought that was such a cute line- well maybe it would have been if people were imagining stuffing a hippo into the corset and not a hypo- - my apologies
