A SONNET - FOR MY ETERNAL LOVE
FOR YOU MY ETERNAL LOVE
For those were days in heaven; those were days
to talk atop. With hands clung, We chatter.
With my shoulder to hold you, We fix glaze.
We walk with splanchnic sea and moon to clatter.
Over the chaise, We ride. With thy breath rhyme,
And thy silky hair blending tune, We ride.
The feel of thy flawless skin adds to chime.
With you beside, the laws are far defied.
Now, I take on the walk and ride. But now,
It's a stride lonely. What shall I say that
Breeze, that moon, wave and bird? Will they allow
a question about you to pass? I tat.
"You love or love me not". But eternal love
of mine, shall never fade! For, thou art 'my love'.
The verses follow iambic pentameter foot type - meaning the order of syllables used within verses. Iambic foot type has a unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable type. There a five such pairs in a verse in a sonnet so they are iambic pentameter.
The rhyming are various like the petrachian, octavian or shakespeare's. The petrachian follows abba abba cde cde.
While I have followed shakespeare's which have pattern of abab cdcd efef and then a couplet -gg.)
