All in the pleasant open air, The pleasant light of day; And blown by all the winds that pass And wet with all the showers, She walks among the meadow grass And eats the meadow flowers. Lesson 3: Sonnet Intro What is a sonnet? Sonnet: pattern

After Turkey Day, the garbage bags sat;

My dog was tempted by the tasty sight. He tore them open, gorged big, and grew fat, But first he made a mess and caused some blight. He ate some hot sauce and blueberry pies, Then laid around and moaned out loud in pain. I worried in my heart of his demise, And tried to scrub the purple carpet stain. He slowly came around and waddled slow, His belly wide and nearly to the floor. So sad to see my hungry doggy grow So portly wide, he barely fit his door. He survived, but still he is more than stout. Ive learned. Next time Ill take the garbage out!

Your Turn In partners Other Examples: (notice the RYHYME SCHEME (abab, cdcd, efef, gg), QUATRAINS, and RHYMING COUPLET The sonnet form is old and full of dust And yet I want to learn to write one well. To learn new forms and grow is quite a must, But I will learn it quickly, I can tell. And so I sit, today, with pen in hand, Composing three new quatrains with a rhyme. The rhythm flows like wind at my command. The A-B-A-B form consumes my time.

But Im not done until theres fourteen lines. One ending couplet, after three quatrains. Ive tried to write this new form several times. The efforts huge; I have to rack my brain. But I persist, my fourteen lines now done. I wrote my poem; my sonnet work is won. Lesson 3: Sonnet Intro Sonnet 18 Shall I compare you to a summer day? Youre lovelier and milder. Rough winds shake the pretty buds of May, and summer doesnt last nearly long enough.

Sometimes the sun shines too hot, and often its golden face is darkened by clouds. And everything beautiful stops being beautiful, either by accident or simply in the course of nature. But your eternal summer will never fade, nor will you lose possession of your beauty, nor shall death brag that you are wandering in the underworld, once youre captured in my eternal verses. As long as men are alive and have eyes with which to see, this poem will live and keep you alive. Lesson 4: Iambic Pentameter IAMBIC PENTAMETER
