Been Asked to Write a Sonnet

Shakespeare in comedy mode

Ingrid recently set a sonnet challenge for her readers
I missed the deadline. She has asked me to put my head down and learn some real poetry in preparation for the next one. Here are my thoughts at the moment:

Been asked to write a sonnet

I don’t know what they are

I ain’t no Willy Shakespeare

I ain’t no sonnet star

I’m just a lowly poet

Trying to learn the ropes

My friend said it will drive me nuts

How am I gonna cope?

Shakespeare was a rhymer….

Was he?….

And he wrote sonnets…..

Did he?….

And he wrote humour….

Did he?….

And he was a lowly poet to begin with……

Did it drive him nuts?….


So there’s hope for me?….

Head down.
Show you can shine with some real poetry…
