The Sonnet Form
Folks say the sonnet form is out of date.
I cannot say that I myself agree.
Though modern poets’ verse is often free
of form or even simple rhyme of late.
Don’t you agree that it’s a noble trait?
To so constrain yourself when desperately
you seek to share the pure philosophy
within your heart to which all men relate?
If all this talk of sonnets makes you weak.
I still believe it’s how most people speak.
