Write a Shakespearean Sonnet
Write a Shakespearean sonnet. It is to be in iambic pentameter with a rhyme scheme of: abab cdcd efef gg. Metric substitutions are okay as long as they are intentional and further the piece. MISTAKES are NOT metrical substitutions.
It is often said that free verse poets write free verse because they are UNABLE to write the more "DIFFICULT" structured forms that the REAL poets write.
Those who make such claims are what one would call WRONG.
Just a little break from our amazing free verse poetry to demonstrate that, yep, we can knock off a sonnet with the best of them!
