A Free-Style Sonnet
Made with 3 quatrents and 1 couplet. 10 syllables per line. No rhyming, though...
Influenced and inspired by "Simple and Clean" by Utada Hikaru
Under the moonlight was a raven bird
Like the moons its silver orbs were shining
Where wrong fears and blind rage is given birth
Like the stars its claws beamed through the abyss
Unlike the small bird of the golden day
The yellow bird was light flying with suns
Like the suns its golden orbs were glowing
Its slick beak will make thousand winds of flames
'Tis raven can read thousand waves of sea
Both birds are day and night like push and pull
Up and down like sky and sea like yin-yang
The world's kings, not be heard or seen but felt
That nothing is whole and nothing's broken
Each a passion to a being of heart
This was done for an English Honors class assignment. We were studying Shakespeare and we had to do a Shakespearean sonnet of our
own with 3 quatrents and 1 couplet. I forgot a Skakespearean sonnet rhymed, so I got points taken off...
I was bummed, though...
