    I'm glad you enjoyed this one, RhymeLovingWriter. I do have a love of Sonnets, and I think the form allows me expression in more lyrical ways than oter forms of poetry.

    You know, it's like anything else... a little study, a lot of practice... then you don't really need to think too much about the rules. It's more a solid foundation... the basic structure needed... you know what I mean? They are just "there" so you can focus your attention on writing the poem! I appreciate your comments! Thank you, imrogue!

    What a lovely comment! To be caught up in the enjoyment of the poem: that is what I want to experience both in the writing, and in the reading, of poetry! Thank you, Parkinsonpoet!

    It takes a little effort to really understand the process... after that, it's no more difficult than any other form of poetry. I'm glad you stopped by to read and comment. Thanks Nan!

    Thanks MHenry—I do love the sonnet form! I'm glad you found this one enjoyable!

    I admire that greatly and usually that means I am so busy being impressed I forgot to enjoy it. This time I enjoyed greatly that I had to read it again to see how clever it was

    Whoa and Wow, I guess I did miss English. Thanks for the rules and the lovely poem as an example. Looks like it takes some time to write.
    Beautiful.

    Hi, pipersfancy, This a really beautiful piece of art. While the entire poem flows like honey, sweet to the taste, the last words of the last line are truly sublime. where Love's facade, sweet rose, binds bloom and thorn. The poem transcends the structure, making it invisible, yet is a pure example of a Shakespearean sonnet (not that I had a clue before you told me...).

    I'm not being gracious. I'm in awe. I tried with my attempt with the ABAB rhyme scheme but the poem went in a different direction. And the ending cuplet is difficult too.

    What a gracious comment— thank you very much, cc springer! The Sonnet is very near and dear to my heart. I've studied the form for years, and while I don't consider myself primarily a metrical poet, I love the discipline it asks of me when I write.

    Now. That's a poem! That takes so much time and thought but at the end it's pure art.
