Today, I’m giving the Spenserian Sonnet a try. The great poet Edmund Spenser created this form, a variation of the English form: Fourteen lines composing three interlocking quatrains with the ABAB BCBC CDCD EE rhyme scheme.
Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt: a not apology
That slimy pit where we were spawned Sprawls and spits oozing goo. And still in strife you will the bond As though that bond were a glue. Fly you will not or soar the wind that first blew From the sky that held the sun so high. You would rather rot and screw And bind your time as others pass you by. You will not to any effort apply That which will leave behind a mark To bind in hope or joy or honor tie Future’s fortune, for you to stark. Let me gaze upon that pond and praise. Let me gaze and aid that those who follow blaize.
