“Your journey has molded you for the greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”
Asha Tyson (born 1970);Writer, public speaker
A Spencerian sonnet I wrote in February of 1996
“And what if you could have each heart’s desire….”
Warming up for another turn in the hot seat at my writer’s critique group on Friday night. Submitted the next section of the book I’m working on in advance, so group members have a chance to look it over before the meeting.
Already have gotten some excellant feedback, and am looking forwards to seeing what else my writing partners have to share with me.
I know it’ll make this an even better book. And that’s important, because I want to write the best book that I possibly can for you folks who read my work….
We’ve talked about Spanish sonnets. We’ve spoken of English or shakespearian sonnets.
And now, a third variety of sonnet for your dining and dancing pleasure- the Spencerian sonnet…..
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
This English sonnet was written on 2/24/96 as a wedding present for two of my medieval re-enactment friends
We’ve talked about sonnets in previous posts. We’ve talked about iambic pentameter and the basics of sonnets and sonnets and rhyme schemes. We’ve looked at one form of sonnet, the Spanish sonnet and seen an example of that.
But we’re not done yet…
There’s only a little time left before Wicked Winter’s Renaissance Faire hosts Halloween:Welcome Home on February 17th to 19th in Somerset, New Jersey.
