A Sonnet, Defined...... [as per Paul Brookes; NOT in sonnet form]
Four-line stanzas, except for the last, which will be two.
Each line: of ten syllables; eleven syllables just won't do.
'You' must rhyme line one with three, and line two with four.
Last stanza: line-endings rhyme. That's it. There's no more.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
'English fourteen line Sonnet Form of 'I Will survive': O))
The best I could do at short notice it's a little poor in places hope I've got the gist
the Sonnet is very precise and its lines must be ten syllables and it is short so I couldn't get all your points in
It was a cold November afternoon
He said you have to move now out my bed.
I took it for a joke but learnt too soon
His eyes though, erased this thought out my head,
And though shocked, yet I had seen it coming,
I need you out in two days time no less
Though hard I know tis my own shortcoming,
How did we manage to make such a mess?
There was a time we were never parted
Then you were always so late from your work
So many nights I spent broken hearted
And our love making you did sadly shirk.
Yet here I am and glad to be alive
And without you, you know, I will survive.'
so that is my story and i'm sticking to it! i wrote my 'sonnet' poem as a response to paul AND to help me remember how to compose a sonnet........just in case i get ambitious; i'm not awfully good at counting syllables. well, maybe i AM 'awful' at it. :)
p.s. are there other kinds of sonnets [he wrote 'English fourteen line Sonnet Form']? i'm NOT changing my title!
