A Sonnet [Aug. 4th, 2005|04:45 pm]
Hippies with Frisbees


This is something that I wrote the first week of YPI this year, and I thought that it was worth sharing. It's a sonnet. For those of you that think sonnets are boring...think again. It is the first and only sonnet I have written, in proper rhyme scheme and iambic pentameter.

A sky as fair as any sky can be
with clouds and rockets shining up above
A maiden lived and pined to see the sea
(the eyes need not to fall on one to love)
For, then, this maiden, she lived in the sky
and never traveled down to visit earth
Her father had forbade her down to fly
and locked her in a cloudhold since her birth
Yet, even so, she longed to see the day
to walk among the people who were there
All night, then, she would sit in bed and pray
until one night a prince appeared so fair
And they escaped to life that's more complex
and then he said that he just wanted sex
