Deliciously abundant was the sweet tasting aroma of utter defeat
Thoust made her a stranger to love, respect and truth
For it lies deeply rooted in her decaying tooth
This will make survival hard for her to eat
For life is seductive with all of her charms
Pleading for more attention as if comparis to the sun
Thoust left her blinded add if the sun were the one
Self infliction is her choice of arms
Be not weary for their is reprieve for thou
When Weight is fiercely met with hesitation
Life teaches us to shift as a new lesson
Now wipe the sweat from your lovely brow
This is not the end of love my dear friend
It’s a new beginning for life, The End
For our last assignment in Writing we 01: Poetry we were to create a sonnet. Challenge accepted but not sure how well it was executed.
All feedback is welcomed.
Thank you in advance for reading. 😉
In response to Writing 201: Poetry
Day 10: Pleasure, Sonnet, Apostrophe
Could it be our final assignment already?! Let’s close this course on a note of joy, glee, and profound contentment.
Today’s device: apostrophe
Most poems are addressed to an amorphous reader, if to anyone at all. Which is why an apostrophe can produce such a striking effect in a poem: it occurs when the speaker in the poem addresses another person or an object (usually personified) directly.
Is this a dagger which I see before me,
The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee!
I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.
Talking about a dagger? Easy there, Macbeth! Talking to a dagger? Now that’s truly dangerous.
You can write a poem that is made up entirely of one extended apostrophe, or switch back and forth between addressing your reader and addressing someone (or something) else.
An apostrophe can cover a wide range of emotions, from the warm pride of “O Canada! Our home and native land!” to the chill of John Dryden’s “Let me, let me freeze again to death!” (in his King Arthur libretto).
