Brittany, Thou Rapture, Uplifts, My Soul... (A Sonnet)

by Robert Gardiner   Jan 13, 2015

This is a Poem/Sonnet I composes per the parameters and guideline of "Rhyme Scheme, Rhythm, & Metering Challenge (Exercise)" {};

Brittany, Thou Rapture, Uplifts, My Soul... (A Sonnet)

Brittany, Thou Rapture, Uplifts, My Soul
Nothing Matches, The Magic, You Bestow.
Exhilarated, I'm Left, Ever So,
Enamored, Delighted, Besotted, Whole.

Venus, Aphrodite, Could Not Induce,
The Ecstasy, With Which, You Leave Me, Moved.
With Such, Utter Fancy, You Leave Me, Wooed.
Nothing Matches, The Bliss. Brought On, By You.

Fascinated, My Every Corridor,
In Affinity, And In, An Uproar,
Intoxicated, So, By Your Allure.

You Leave Me, Just Spellbound, With Such Ardor.
No Rhapsody, Like That, Which You Out Pour,
Enchantment, Within Me, You Do, Conjure...

Meter: Pentameter
Rhythm: Mixed

    I went through the topic of metering and rhythm topic but was a bit reluctant to get myself to write a Sonnet! You seemed to have mastered all these so perfectly and as always penned a passionate poem. Well done!!
