    What has happened to the English sonnet?This beautiful form of poetry seems not to be in favour these days. Why is this?I attach one of my sonnets for Forum readers to read in the hope that others may write this form of poetry and keep it alive:

    Sonnet 79: The Nightingale and the Lark

    The Nightingale her sweet music does bring
    Beautiful melodies to the woodland floor,
    On a clear still day you can hear her sing
    Beautiful songs unlocking nature’s door.

    Even sparrow’s hedgehogs and squirrels hark
    At such a delicate sound in the air
    Even when a new song is sung by the Lark
    They compete making a formidable pair.

    The Lark rising in the early morning
    Found singing his heart out come rain or shine,
    While other woodland birds wake up yawning
    No sweeter sound can make the day so fine.

    The Nightingale and Lark sing songs of love
    Blessing all nature with songs from above.

    A simple 'I don't know' would have done.
