Writers (shadow sonnet)

by Michael   May 15, 2018

Show us to a way so we can then show
train us in ways so as we can then train
grow more within us so others can grow
feign all will spoil so be true and not feign
flow with our hearts and our writing will flow
pain we will share and show others our pain
know you are honest as this we must know
gain is the game so work hard for the gain
stow letters with care but not over stow
claim our efforts then joy we shall all claim
glow in our work and for always we'll glow
aim with your love and our quills take their aim
be gallant and bold and brave we shall be
see all that we write so others can see

    An excellent piece Michael with great technique in what is for most a difficult form. With a wonderful message to the world too. Loved it. Milly x

    First off let me say well done with the form Shadow Sonnet and
    the message within is something we all should try and follow.
    Now here is a form I need to have a go at! Well done!!

    Just a few things I would like to say and I hope you don't mind.
    This sentence:

    flow with the heart and writing will flow
    ^^this has only 9 syllabus instead of 10

    pain we will share and show others our pain
    ^^this actually has 11 syllabus because "our" if I'm not
    mistaken is 2 syllabus

    These are just a few and I hope I've not offended you or
    said anything wrong.

    Keep penning...take care

      Thank Meena, and not at all I appreciate your keen eye :)

      'our' is actually one syllable (thank goodness) and I have now added believe it or not an 'our' in that line of nine - now ten

      Thank you again :)x
