My Sonnet Information
Characteristics of a Sonnet
History of the Sonnet Poem
“It’s tight rhyme scheme and metrical regularity emphasize its musicality, but the sonnet is also thought of as the first poetic form that was intended to be read silently, as opposed to performed and shared.”
Purpose of the Sonnet Poem
The first is an Italian Sonnet by James DeFord, written in 1997:Turn back the heart you've turned away
Give back your kissing breath
Leave not my love as you have left
The broken hearts of yesterday
But wait, be still, don't lose this way
Affection now, for what you guess
May be something more, could be less
Accept my love, live for today.
Your roses wilted, as love spurned
Yet trust in me, my love and truth
Dwell in my heart, from which you've turned
My strength as great as yours aloof.It is in fear you turn away
And miss the chance of love today!
