Sonnet Cakes


Sonnet Cakes


Catch a passing flock of words
Put them in a pan
To make a happy sonnet
For your favourite man.


Add a pinch of rhythm
A spoonful of rhyme
Pop them in the oven
Then wait some time


Check if they are burning
Consult with your muse
About variety in flavours,
In structure, different views.


Jolly sonnet cakes for tea
Some for you and some for me.

    Written with a lot of humour and expertise in it. Enjoyed reading it, something different from the general drama of pain even in love.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
