Details

Write a strict Shakespearean sonnet (not a Petrarchan sonnet). Use iambic pentameter and this rhyme scheme:

A-B-A-B, C-D-C-D, E-F-E-F, GG

You choose the subject matter. Nothing obscene, please.

Again, the poem must be a strict Shakespearean sonnet in terms of rhythm, rhyme and length (14 lines in total).
