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 sonnet is the most common form of poetry and the most difficult form I found until now. It has 14 verses divided into 3 quatrains with each having four lines. The 3 rd quatrain introduces the change in theme or twist in poem. The poem ends with a se-stet with brings the resolution to the twist generally.
 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.)

  3. I get the meaning of the sonnet, it's very beautiful. But as i am not much of a poetic person myself i am not able to understand the poetic nuances of it. The iambic pentameter u have used is impressive. What is abab, cdcf?...sounds too complicated. After reading the explanation i thought it must have taken months for you to write it, but you say only hours,i am surprised! Prodigious indeed!:-)

  6. okay...now i understand, thanks for explaining. But still it is complicated, it would have taken me a lifetime to get those rhyming words and also fitting it in iambic pentameter:-)
    Great work!

  9. Romantic, indeed; and very nicely done as well.

    But I thought a sonnet is a 14 lines poem divided in an Octet (8 lines) and a Sestet(6 lines). :|
