So I have a contest for you guys. It’s been a while since I have done one, but reading Ben’s inspired me. This contests consist in you picking one member from this site and writing a sonnet to them or about them or be my guess and surprise me. It can be about anything but include their name/alias in the Sonnet.
Including their name/alias in the sonnet and the title.
Title: Mr. Darcy and his gift of Sonnets
This Christmas time, when winter came around,
dear Michael saw some snow in P and Q.
He started then to walk through out its ground
with joy until he felt a little blue.
The grounds that used to be so green with life
where now so white and cold almost with frost
that Michael gave a step to slip in strife
to then just freeze in thought so deeply lost.
He thought how Ben had once re-warmed the fields
and wonder if he too could do just that
So then he stood to think what Christmas yields
while he so slowly just became, guess what?
Oh yes! Our P and Q's dear Santa Claus.
Who gifts some comments too without a cause.
Or including their name in the acrostic form but not necessarily in line by line. Like this:
Title: More like I borrowed (sonnet/acrostic)
I lost the pen which had the ink with dreams
So I then searched for it within my hair
To my dismay I found one filled with screams
Oh my! I jumped and put it back in there.
Like later I begin to search again
Except this time within another place
Because my head (it seemed) was full with pain
Enhancing the yearn for one filled with grace.
Now after searching for so many weeks
(' Cause I did search and search without an end )
Some mighty pen with ink from the antiques
Persistently allege to be my friend.
Essentially the pen attached to me,
Now can you guess whose pen could this one be?
Private message me your entry. Due date is October 23 midnight. I’ll post them hopefully the next day for voting. You’ll have to choose your top three - top choice 10, then second choice 7, and third 4 points.
The winner will get a comment from me. And If I have more free time, I’ll write one or two more comments...
Have fun guys. I look forward to the entries.
P.s. don’t worry if they are not perfect, just have fun writing them.
