Alberts Poetry Cafe ~ "Fun With Form" Poeticpiers 'French Sonnet' May 31, 2010 - June 10, 2010
Perhaps the link between Italian and English sonnets
Two quatrains abba abba
Rhyming couplet cc
Choice of final quatrain rhyme patterns
When lovers walk hand in hand by moonlight.
The world becomes their private wonderland.
A world that only lovers understand
created solely for their joint delight.
It seems that only lovers have the right
and only when they’re walking hand in hand
of access in response to loves command.
Non lovers doomed to fail try as they might
They know that love supplies the golden key
to open the locks which bar their entry.
So come my love and place your hand in mine
and let us walk together trustfully.
Through worlds that only lovers see.
A paradise only love could design.
First. second, third, fourth & fifth prizes
